Juglans Regia Broadview Walnut Tree Juglans Regia Broadview, also called Walnut Broadview, is an excellent fruit tree for UK gardens. This deciduous nut-bearing tree was developed in Kelowna, British Columbia in Canada in the 1930’s from a tree originating from Odessa in Russia. Smaller than the native English walnut or Common Walnut, Juglans Regia Broadview can be pruned to maintain a size small enough to fit into a limited space. Our specimens are trained and shaped as full standard trees on clear stems.
The leaves, 25-40 cm long with 5-9 leaflets, are a deep purple-bronze colour when they first emerge, later turning an attractive medium green. The flowers are insignificant green catkins in April and May, and then develop into the distinctive green walnut fruits over the summer, with the nuts ready to pick in late October, as early as 3 years after planting! The nuts should split open when ready for harvest.
Being Self-fertile Juglans Regia Broadview doesn't need a pollinating partner to produce nuts. These can be harvested green and pickled, or left until autumn to ripen when they are dried and can then be stored.
Height and Spread of Juglans Regia Broadview Juglans Regia Broadview will grow to 6 metres high in 10 to 20 years, eventually reaching a full height of 8 metres and spread of 6 metres. It can also be kept pruned to a smaller height of 3-4 metres. In fact pruning encourages heavier fruiting.

How to Use Juglans Regia Broadview Juglans Regia Broadview makes a good tree for a focal point in a lawn, whether large or small. It is a good shade tree in addition to producing large crops of nuts.
How to Care for Juglans Regia Broadview Plant Juglans Regia Broadview in full sun in a sheltered position in moist, well-drained soil with an alkaline to neutral pH. Avoid planting in a frost pocket where a late frost might affect the spring blooms and foliage, as well as the eventual autumn yield of walnuts. Walnut Broadview is self-fertile, so there is no need to plant more than one variety, while at the same time it is good choice for pollinating other walnut trees. It is tolerant of urban pollution, so can be planted in city gardens. Juglans Regia Broadview can be pruned in late winter to maintain a smaller size or to encourage a heavier crop of nuts.
