A large, upright tree with an open shape, the Chandler Walnut tree produces heavy yields of walnuts in autumn. This tree usually takes two to three years to develop a significant crop, producing nuts that are medium sized with semi-smooth shells that easily crack in half, and is is advisable to have more than one plant in order to cross pollinate and develop a more successful yield. Preferring a colder climate with free-draining soil and a full sun position, be sure to water in well until established, and keep mulched and well watered across summer to ensure the crop develops without stress.
