Rita is a Carpathian variety, very productive and bears a heavy crop of thin shelled nuts. Perfect for the smaller garden due to it's compact and slow growing habit. A hardy variety which starts to yield at an earlier age than other varieties. Appears to have partial self fertility. Great for pickling if the Walnuts are picked unripe in mid-summer or they can be picked in the Autumn for drying and storing.

Walnut Growing Tips: Prefer to be planted in full sun or light shade with a sheltered position with no frost pockets. Will tolerate many soil types but are happier in light, sandy, well-drained soils. Walnuts are difficult to establish in the first year of planting and some die-back in the shoot tips is expected. For pickling, the nuts are best picked in July before the shells are formed. Test with a pin or skewer! Rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.
