Common name: Butternut, white walnut
Juglans cinerea is a slow-growing deciduous tree native to Eastern North America. Its nuts are edible and were used for oil by indigenous peoples. The bark and nut rinds were used by colonizers to make a yellow dye. Many butternuts have succumbed to butternut canker, and it is now threatened in the wild. We have one specimen in the ENA Garden.
