From the same tree, we obtain both the delicious nut and a superb Burl for the precious interior coating.
The story of the California Walnut cultivated in immense plantations under the Californian sun is fascinating. The American Walnut Tree was a plant that did not offer edible fruits.
The man strove to make a graft. The European Walnut was grafted into the American plant. This allowed having not only the exquisite and rounded California Walnuts, bursting in taste, but a powerful Burl as an excrescence, similar to a huge wood drop appeared close to the graft.
Wisely worked and stripped, the California Walnut Burl is a precious wood species sought in the Interior design.
