Along with 'Broadview', walnut 'Buccaneer' is one of the most suitable self-fertile varieties for growing in the UK. Hardy, late-cropping and vigorous, Juglans regia 'Buccaneer' produces heavy crops of tasty round nuts, starting to produce fruit after only 3-5 years. Harvest green for pickling in July or wait until Autumn to dry out and store. Producing copious pollen, 'Buccaneer' is a good pollinator for other varieties. Late into leaf, it is rarely damaged by frost, and is more compact than the species. Height: 12m (39ft). Spread: 8m (26ft).

Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Walnuts can be slow to establish and during particularly dry periods they will require watering whilst the root system develops.
Prune walnut trees between mid summer and early winter to develop a standard tree with a strong central leader. In the first year, remove laterals from the lowest third of the tree. Shorten laterals from the middle third of the tree by half. Leave laterals at the top third of the tree intact. In following years repeat the process, removing the laterals from the lower third of the tree that were shortened the previous year, until the desired length of clear stem has been achieved. By the fourth year the tree should have achieved a good height and further pruning can be kept to a minimum, removing only dead, damaged or misplaced stems.
