#47: Nut Trees Part 1

A hand holds two walnuts, one in its shell and one in both its shell and the outer flesh which is usually removed before selling.

Dave Zahn, a long time member of the Nebraska Nut Growers Association, joins us this week to talk about nut trees that are native to Nebraska as well as introduced species that grow well here. We talk planting, growing and a little about harvesting nuts both for personal use and as a crop. To be continued with part 2 focused more on harvest and processing!
