Purdue #1 - GSP Black Walnut Trees -
Purdue #1 Black Walnut trees are genetically superior black walnut trees which are fast growing and straighter than the common black walnut seedlings. The Purdue #1 Black Walnut is one of the most sought after black walnut cultivar seedlings as a nut tree for plantations market. The Purdue Research Foundation of Purdue University developed cultivars from selections made for good form, rapid height, and diameter growth, primarily for faster timber production. The Purdue #1 bears abundant nut crops each year with nuts set on lateral shoots, a rare occurrence in black walnut tree. The only negative features that we have found are some susceptibility to anthracnose and a slightly earlier (than normal) leafing date.
With these fast growing legacy Black Walnut trees anticipate at least planting 200 to 300 plants per acre. Purdue recommends on spacing of 14 x 14 which would come to approximately 225 plants per acre allowing more for mortality and removing of undesirable trees.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
