ORGANIC WALNUTS, halves & pieces, domestic
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical name: Juglans regia
The most common edible species of walnuts are either the English walnut (J. regia) originated in Persia, and the black walnut (J. nigra) which is native to eastern North America. The black walnut is of high flavor, but due to its hard shell and poor hulling characteristics it is not grown commercially for nut production.
Qualities: unlike other nuts high in monounsaturated fatty acids, walnuts are composed largely of polyunsaturated fatty acids (72% of total fats), particularly alpha-linolenic acid (14%) and linoleic acid (58%), as well as oleic acid as 13% of total fats. Walnuts without shells are 4% water, 15% protein, 65% fat, and 14% carbohydrates, including 7% dietary fiber.
Common use: Walnut meats are available in either their shells or shelled. Our walnuts are shelled and raw. Walnuts are enjoyed in many culinary dishes, both savory and sweet, as well as baked goods and are delicious candied or pickled.
Storage: ideal temperatures for long term storage are −3 to 0 °C (27 to 32 °F) and low humidity

We LOVE your organic walnuts. I have some every day with yogurt and fruit… [And occasionally with Gelato after dinner too. (smile) So glad we found you — Thank you for your wonderful healthy products…… Betty (and Bob too)

I am thrilled to find your organic walnuts. They are nutritious of course, but they are fresh and delicious as well. I use them in my breakfast yogurts, in salads, as snacks, and in occasional cookies. Thank you for growing them and making them available. Elizabeth
