Kashmiri Walnuts are known for their superiority of taste and are very popular with the consumers. Walnuts are wonderful nuts packed with high protein content and omega 3 fatty acids which are vital for cell growth, preventing diseases and boosting immune system . Walnuts are rounded, single-seeded stone fruits of the walnut tree commonly used for the meat after fully ripening. Following full ripening, the removal of the husk reveals the wrinkly walnut shell, which is usually commercially found in two segments (three-segment shells can also form). During the ripening process, the husk will become brittle and the shell hard. The shell encloses the kernel or meat, which is usually made up of two halves separated by a partition. The seed kernels commonly available as shelled walnuts are enclosed in a brown seed coat which contains antioxidants. The antioxidants protect the oil-rich seed from atmospheric oxygen, thereby preventing rancidity.
The walnut belongs to the small order of trees and shrubs known as Juglandeae. Walnut trees are very large, ranging from 50 to 75 feet in height and width. Kashmir revels in reputation in that it is the only region in India where the walnut tree grows. The natural sheen, color and grains are indeed exceptional and unique. The carving and fret- work done on this wood is of a delight.Generally two types of walnut trees are found in Jammu and Kashmir- one that bears fruit and is noted for its wood, and another which is not fruit-bearing. The latter is known as 'zangul' in local parlance and is less strong and possesses no grains.
Moist coniferous forests of the Eastern and Western Himalayas, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, hilly regions of North and South, the Eastern hills, Uttar Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh are most suitable for the growth of walnut. Total area under walnut is 67053 hectares with annual production over 71758 metric tons.Given the high tariffs and strong domestic production, there are few opportunities for imports. India's 2001/02 walnut production is forecast at 28, 000 tons. Exports are expected to be around 14, 000 tons. The current year (2000/01) export estimate has been raised 11 percent to 15, 500 tons, based on strong demand from the EU and the United States (due to a smaller crop). Major export destinations during the Indian fiscal years 1999 and 2000 were Spain, Egypt, Germany, Netherlands, U.K., Greece, Italy, and the United States. There are no restrictions on walnut exports and no government export subsidies.
Walnuts are late to grow leaves, typically not until more than halfway through the spring. They secrete chemicals into the soil to prevent competing vegetation from growing. Because of this, flowers or vegetable gardens should not be planted close to them
Walnuts can be relished as a healthy snack or you can make them a secret ingredient in your savory curries or use them in desserts. Indulge in the roasted and sweetened delights of almonds. Happy munching!!
There are 2 types of walnuts, English walnut and black walnut. The one which we get commonly is the English walnut. Black walnut is mostly earthier in flavor unlike English walnut.
These are available in shells and without shell. Some walnut has the hard shell and need either a stone or walnut cracker to break open the nut. While some variety of walnuts have paper shells which can be easily broken with your hands or by placing them between your teeth. These paper shell variety is known as Kashmiri Kagazi walnuts" .
