    Franquette walnuts are said, by the French, to be sweeter. Ambassador walnuts have thinner shells.

Very healthy

This tree showed up in perfect shape. The package and root wrap were perfect with plenty of moisture. I am very pleased with Raintree. Keep up the good work.

Disappointing so far but spring may make a difference

We planted a Bareroot Walnut but there are no visible buds below where it was pruned for shipping. The roots were minimal but the weather hasn't warmed up enough yet to cause great concern.
