Juglans regia L.
Stem: Trunk 5--30 m. Leaf: petiole 5.5--11 cm; leaflets 5--11, 10--22 cm, elliptic to oblong-ovate, entire, generally short-acuminate (less often acute), abaxial vein axils with tufts of hairs. Fruit: 3.5--5 cm diam, nut shell +- thin, wrinkled.
Ecology: Seedlings occasionally near cultivated trees; Elevation: < 200 m. Bioregional Distribution: n NCoRO, GV, CW, SW; Distribution Outside California: native to southwestern Asia. Flowering Time: Apr Note: Widely cultivated for nuts. Very short-lived in California unless grafted on resistant roots of Juglans hindsii or Juglans hindsii × Juglans regia, the latter reproducing in wild vegetation near plantings. Juglans regia also crosses with Juglans californica where planted near stands of the latter sp. Further study of walnut hybrids in California needed.
