Walnut Growing


In addition to walnuts as nuts, they pay handsomely as pickles. For this purpose they must be picked green. This could be made a most profitable side industry in connection with large groves. One grower had an inquiry for two carloads of green

walnuts to be used for this purpose. Large quantities are imported annually and they sell at very high prices. They are also used for dyeing purposes, giving a beautiful brown shade difficult to obtain except with walnut hulls. Oil which is often substituted for olive oil is manufactured from walnuts, thus suggesting another commercial avenue. One hundred pounds of walnuts produce eighteen pounds of oil.
