Butternut
no image

Butternut is one of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The nuts are sought after for their mild, sweet, and oily taste. Ensure this tree is planted in full sun and well-drained soil for best results.

Butternut is self-fertile but it has better yields when planted near other butternuts. It can survive in zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3.

Bred by Jeffries Nurseries, the Skyfest is a fast growing, tall cottonwood with excellent disease resistance and adaptability to many kinds of soil. In the fall, its leaves turn a golden yellow.

This species has an aggressive root system, making it unsuitable for planting close to buildings but very drought resistant and an excellent choice for shelterbelts.
