Like Forde and Sexton, Gillet is a new cultivar that features high yields on young trees and a mid-season harvest date (10 days before Chandler). With a low blight score and 100% lateral fruitfulness, Gillet walnut is an excellent early-leafing selection. Gillet nuts are somewhat more oblong than Sexton, but are similar with good seals and shell strength. The light-colored Gillet kernels are easy to remove and heavy (8.2 grams) with a 50% crackout. The tree is more vigorous than Forde or Sexton. Pollenizers are Payne, Vina, Serr and Sexton. (Patent No. 17135)
