Little History on Walnuts
oldest nut in the basket is the walnut, a family
of over fifteen nut trees native to Asia, Europe
and the Americas. One of these, known popularly
as either the Persian or the English walnut, is
the most important worldwide. The walnut tree
probably sprang up somewhere in a large area stretching
from the south eastern portion of Europe through
the Middle East and all the way north into the
mountains of India. The wild trees' fruit was
collected seasonally for thousands of years. Carried
by people and dispersed by birds, the walnut traveled
far and wide.
domestication of the walnut probably began about
12,000 years ago. Stone Age tribes of 7,000 BC
who lived at the edge of Swiss lakes had these
domesticated nuts by 7,000 BC. The Greeks and
the Romans were fond of walnuts, finding them
far superior to the everyday acorns, chestnuts
and beechnuts most people ate. Spanish padres
brought walnuts for planting to the California
coastal missions in the Eighteenth century.
