Walnuts are wind pollinated.
I included pollination details on the www page as it's information not
Male flowers open first, then, quite a few days later after the male
flowers have fallen off, the female flowers open. So the liklihood is that
a distant tree will pollinate, maybe from thousands of miles away!
I'm talking with Dr. Chiranjit Parmar about possibly helping with
Fruitipedia.com and this page is something of a template suggestion so any
feedback about the headings etc could be useful.
