Excerpt

as well as in the South is somewhat open to discussion, due largely to a lack of sufficient information in regard to some of the more promising kinds. There is but little question that the best proven variety for the Northwest is the Franquette and for the East and Northeast, the Pomeroy. Both of these are good producers bearing a fine nut, well filled with a white meat of excellent flavor, and of good shape and commanding the highest market prices. The two varieties are also very late in starting in the Spring making them safe against the late frosts. Their pistillate and staminate blossoms mature at the same time.

****.

First published in 1912 this work offers advice for potential Walnut growers of the era in the United States.

It is the opinion of this reviewer that until our economy reaches stabilization, the average landowner is going to have to view his/her property from a perspective that goes way beyond the aesthetic of a neatly trimmed lawn and look at their land as part of their economic package. Growing shade trees that also produce fruit as well as raw timber (in 1912, one mature English Walnut tree sold for $3,000) is a wise investment of one's property.

Though this little pamphlet is almost a century old, the information is valuable and is a good stepping stone toward making your lawn profitable as well as beautiful.
