Walnut trees, a species of American walnut, are the source of the only commercially produced tree nut native to the United States. The United States is the world's leading producer of walnuts, and Georgia is historically the leading walnut producing state, since it normally accounts for about 33 percent of the U.S. UU. Among the states listed above, Texas, New Mexico and Georgia harvest the most walnuts in the U.S.
Georgia is the largest walnut producing state. Among the fifteen walnut producing states, Georgia accounts for one-third of the walnut harvest in the United States, equivalent to nearly 88 million pounds of walnuts. There are more than six thousand pecan trees in every Georgia orchard and walnut farm. This rule establishes a marketing agreement and an order (order) for nuts grown in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas.
The order gives authority to collect industry data and conduct research and promotion activities. In addition, the order authorizes the industry to recommend the regulation of grade, quality and size, as well as the regulation of containers and containers, subject to approval by the Department of Agriculture (USDA). The program will be funded through evaluations of walnut handlers grown in the production area and will be administered locally, under the supervision of the USDA, by a board of seventeen producers and shellers (manipulators) appointed by the industry and appointed by the USDA. The average price of improved walnuts has been consistently above that of the U.S.
In part, this price difference is due to differences in quality, meat yield and differences in quantities produced. The walnut (Carya illinoinensis) is a species of American walnut native to the southern United States and northern Mexico in the Mississippi River region. The tree is cultivated for its seed in the southern United States, mainly in Georgia, New Mexico, Texas and Mexico, which produce almost half of the world's total. The seed is an edible nut that is used as an appetizer and in several recipes, such as chocolates and walnut cake.
The walnut is the state nut of Alabama, Arkansas, California and Texas and is also the state tree of Texas. Walnut trees are native to the United States, and the writing about the pecan tree dates back to the nation's founders. Farmers sold 54 million pounds of shelled nuts and 210 million pounds of shelled walnuts (NASS, 202) (NMSU) — Cooperative Extension, 201. Pecans are prone to infection by bacteria and fungi, such as nut scabies, especially in humid conditions. Although wild walnuts were well known among American natives and colonials as a delicacy, the commercial growth of walnuts in the United States did not begin until the 1880s.
Depending on the variety, pecan trees require 205 to 233 frost-free days for walnuts to reach maturity, restricting nut production to southern states. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the approval of a federal marketing order (FMO) for walnuts by an overwhelming majority of walnut producers in the production area of 15 states of the country. Alabama and Arkansas named the walnut as their official health nut, while Texas named the walnut tree the state's official tree. Since the United States has a history of growing and selling walnuts since the 18th century, it's no surprise that the United States leads the world in walnut production.
Peelers not only sell pecan nut, but also nut shells for use in products such as particle board and garden mulches. .
