The Best Nut Tree Varieties
Nuts are not really fruit trees, but they all taste good together with chocolate, or without it, so here they are.
Wild walnuts will eventually dwarf any fruit tree, and are a joy to see in large gardens and parks; the named cultivars' cropping lives start, and they can be kept to a smaller size of around 5 metres. The value to the people who own them as timber in future decades is likely to be more than enough to incentivise planting more.
For the average garden, the comparatively small, even shrubby, hazelnut varieties are far and away the most popular. They also make a wonderful windbreak: a tall, rarely cut hedge, in effect. You may need squirrel deterrent to keep them, but they crop heavily with few problems and, given full sun, are fine on poor soils with help from your mulching, or damp soils that waterlog periodically in winter.
