The new Forde walnut is precocious with a mid-season harvest date. Forde leafs out about 5 days before Chandler and is 100% laterally fruitful. Forde produces immense nuts that are oval to round, medium-textured with a good seal and a strong yet easily removed shell. The remarkably large (9 gram), plump kernels are light and make up about 54% of the total weight. Forde is intermediate in vigor between Sexton and Gillet and shows low susceptibility to walnut blight. Pollenizers are Payne, Vina, Serr and Sexton. (Patent No. 16495)
