sorry, i meant how much growth do they put on per year, rather than how quickly they germinate. i hear they're slow growers...

hi,had sent last post and realised thats what you probably meant!!!I wouldnt consider them to be to slow in comparision to other trees,i planted a large number of mixed species trees about 10-12 years ago including walnut and there wouldnt be a noticeable difference between them other than the walnut has a broader canopy.tallest one i have would be about 20-25 feet in that time and all started fruiting well after about 5-7 years.have 5 producing fruit now,with a couple more young trees on the way!!
