Here black walnuts, Juglans nigra, are the common ones and Juglans regia are called English walnuts, or tree nurseries sometimes call them Carpathian walnuts or Persian walnuts. In Europe Juglans regia are just walnuts. Someone told me that in Finland they call them German walnuts. https://www.thespruce.com/walnut-tree-species-3269725

Looking forward to doing a taste test soon. Such a dilemma... Do I taste a few of the seeds? Or do I put every seed possible into growing the next generation of trees. It might be 15 years before the next generation bears nuts.
