    At one minute per nut, I'd still be working 10 hours a day to open up what I had to get rid of. LOL
    I do love the meat though. Black Walnut ice cream is my go to.

    I love black walnut ice cream and I probably did a couple or three loader buckets last year.

    Especially paper shell. Put two in the hand, press, and your eating.

    Paper shell trees is what I had wanted to plant, but never got around to it. I actually planted two English walnut trees. One made it and the second one the graft didn't take. I left it in place for that year and the rootstock took off. That is how I got the black walnut.

    Amazing how you have to graft to get paper shells. Before retiring, a co-worker took the grafting class at OSU. He got ate up with it.
    I think he had 6 or 7 different pecan varieties grafted on to a single host tree at one time.
    We have two natives in the yard, but the nuts are only the size of a skinny woman's pinky. Not worth picking up. They are self pruning trees though so never run out of smoking wood.
