Description: The introduction and evaluation of black walnut (Juglans nigra L.) into the People's Republic of China is a relatively recent development (Xi and others 1999). Small isolated black walnut plantings established by missionaries from the United States can be found throughout much of China; however, few written records document the growth of the surviving black walnut trees. In the early 1980s, the Chinese Academy of Forestry in Beijing and the University of Nebraska initiated a cooperative venture with the Friendship Nursery in Henan Province to exchange walnut and pecan germplasm. Wang (1996) estimates this venture resulted in more than 40 acres of black walnut plantings as nine demonstration plantings, nut cultivar trials, or scionbank orchards.
