Description: The common walnut is a deciduous tree, native to Central Asia and Northern India and naturalised in Southern Europe which reaches up to 35 metres in height. The leaves are alternate, ovate to lanceolate in shape, oddly-pinnate with 5–9 leaflets, with a central midrib and veined markings, mid-green in colour and 25-40cm in length. The tree has male and female flowers, the male presents as greenish coloured drooping catkins, 5-10cm in length. The female flowers are yellowish-green in colour and are grouped in terminal clusters of 2-5 which form a fruit with a ridged green outer shell.
Brief History: The common walnut was cultivated by the Chinese over 2,000 years ago, and has been used as food and medicine for over 7,000 years. Old English apothecaries used walnut as a vermifuge to expel intestinal worms; it was even used to treat scrofula in children and gout in adults. Culpeper in the 17th century recommended that the leaves ‘when taken with sweet wine, move the belly downwards’.
