Howard is a laterally fruitful, mid-season walnut with heavy bearing potential. A smaller sibling of Chandler, Howard was released by the University of California in 1979. The semi-upright tree is not as large or vigorous as Chandler and should be pruned to encourage growth. Due to its smaller growth habit, Howard is a good candidate for high-density plantings. Like other late-leafing varieties, Howard has reduced blight and codling moth susceptibility. The nut is large, round, smooth and well-sealed with a very high percentage of light kernels (96%). Howard can be pollenized by Cisco or Franquette.
