How the vaccinated walnut saplings are produced?

As a consequence of the information we obtained and the impression we had, we know that the walnut has a heterozygote nature and regardless of the variety’s seeds, which are planted, they do not give the features of the variety. Therefore, the grafted walnut saplings are achieved by grafting on the seedling (rootstock) stemming from the planted seeds, in order to achieve fruits having the desired features, high-quality, high market value and uniform.



The walnut is one of the fruit types, which achieving saplings by grafting is difficult. We use patch budding method, which is the healthiest, and high-quality grafting method (stagnant), during the grafting stage, and with the experience, knowledge and practice of years we have reached to 80-90% in respect of successful grafting rates.

In recent years, in the gardens which are established with the varieties such as Chandler and Fernor that yields fruit early and with more fruitful varieties, productivity is gained in the 3rd year. Depending on the variety and caring conditions, 10-12 kg. fruit can be obtained in 5-6th years, 15-20 kg. fruit in 10th years, 40-50 kg. Fruit in 15th year, and 100-150 kg. fruit in 20th year  per tree annually.

In accordance with this information, we – as BANDIRMA GÜVEN NURSERY – shall be glad to contribute with our healthy, first class and 100% correct named saplings and with the most suitable prices from the producer to the consumer, to your grafted walnut nursery which you intend or shall intend to establish, regardless of the quantity.


How is the Grafted Walnut Cultivation Performed?

The persons, who wants to plant saplings, must understand the structure of the soil and the climate of the region at first. The person must learn whether the walnut variety, which he/she wants to grow up, is suitable for the climate and structure of the soil or not by researching. Finally, he/she must choose the grafted walnut variety, which he/she wants to grow depending on these information, and must plant the saplings accordingly. He/she must determine the number of the saplings according to the plantation range of the chosen walnut variety, and he/she must purchase accordingly.

Grafting is combining two different varieties of walnut plant, and transforming into a new walnut variety. The persons, who wants to establish a walnut nursery, should not forget that the walnut plant is a heterozygote plant, and therefore must prefer grafted walnut sapling cultivation. Thus, high-yielding products are achieved in a shorter period, and saving on time is achieved due to the grafted plant. Another advantage of the grafted walnut cultivation shall be the increase in quality, because it incorporates the two plants.



Issues to be Considered While Giving Orders

In recent years, with the increasing demand for the sapling planting, some advertisements can be seen in markets, on televisions and through internet which do not reflect the truth, with non-logical commitments (such as non-requesting water, resistant to cold between -30 and -40, yielding 25-30 kg fruits at 4-5 years age, and “shorty”), there is not any variety named as “shorty walnut” in the world. Actually, the “shorty” expression is mentioned for Chandler; Chandler walnut tree gives fruits as bunches, because it grows as scrub, as shown in the picture.

Thus, for your benefit, before giving orders, query the certificates and sapling variety of the person or institutions which are giving very low prices.
