Sunland, an early-leafing, late-maturing walnut, offers heavy crops of particularly huge nuts with plump kernels averaging 10.4 grams. Like many early-leafing California cultivars, Sunland is sensitive to walnut blight, especially in humid or rainy areas. The Sunland kernel is light with a very good crackout (58%) and the tree is a good lateral bearer (80% of lateral buds bear flowers).
