Details
The walnut was first cultivated in California by the Franciscan Fathers in the late 1700s. Unlike today’s walnuts, these first entries were small with hard shells. The first commercial plantings began in 1867 when Joseph Sexton, an orchardist and nurseryman in Santa Barbara County, planted English walnuts. Seventy years later, the center of walnut production moved northward to the Central Valley due to better growing areas and irrigation, resulting in increasingly larger crops of the self-pollinating nut.
