what else you should know

cut & sifted black walnut leaf

The black walnut tree is ancient and sometimes considered a “weed tree” in agricultural areas. One reason that it’s so successful is because it eliminates neighboring competition by sending out a toxic substance called juglone. Many fruit trees, flowering shrubs and vegetables cannot survive within a 50-foot radius of a black walnut tree.

The astringent and antimicrobial reputation of black walnut leaf is owing to the same organic compound.


Description: Black walnut, a native North American perennial, grows to 120 feet in height and is found throughout the eastern United States and Canada. The bark is thick and brown to grayish-black in color with deep furrows and narrow forking ridges which form a diamond pattern. The leaves are pinnately compound, with 9-21 ovate lanceolate, serrate leaflets. Male and female flowers grow in separate catkins. The fruit/nut is deeply grooved and hemispherical in shape inside a spherical, rough husk.

Safety: Extended use of leaf may cause mild dermatitis in some.
