The tree's other name is Persian walnut it gives a better clue to its origins. The tree was only later called the English walnut to distinguish it from the American variety, known as Black walnut. The tree is said to grow to 25 to 35 metres with a trunk two metres in diameter in 60 years. The rich colours of walnut became fashionable in the late 17th century The complex grain patterns that make the wood so distinctive come from the bole of the trunk nearest the ground that is harvested from a large mature tree.
