The Walnut

Or the tree of Jupiter

There are many legends and superstitions that over the centuries originated around the Walnut tree and its fruits. It is said, in fairy tales, that wonderful treasures were hidden inside walnuts. At one time, in Sicily, it was believed that a walnut kept in your pocket averted spells and fever. Witches made use of the toxic qualities of the plant for their spells. In this regard, St. Isidore of Seville attributed the name “walnut” to the Latin noxius, meaning “harmful”. But it is in classical era that the Walnut was the main protagonist: considered a prophetic tree by Greek culture, in ancient Rome it was sacred to Jupiter, perhaps because of its majesty.

Juglans, the Latin name of the genus Walnut, is the contraction of Iovis glans, or "Jupiter's acorn".

A vigorous tree, with harmonious proportions and airy foliage, the Walnut can reach up to 40 meters in height, more than one in diameter and several centuries of age. It prefers light, deep, nutrient-rich and well-drained soil. In short, a climate similar to that of wine-growing regions. It is no coincidence that for centuries life in Ticino, and throughout Switzerland, has found solid support in the Walnut tree and its fruits. In the early 1950s, about half a million trees were registered in Switzerland, then decreasing until 2008, when our nation had a population of just 130,000. More than 300 hectares of walnut groves have been planted in recent years to reinvigorate the national market for the fruit, and also for the much sought-after timber. Highly valuable, walnut wood is among the best in terms of quality, ease of processing and resistance. And, of course, its appearance. Although varying considerably according to the habitat in which it grows, the brown color with black grains never ceases to fascinate. Its wood is used for the manufacture of furniture, panneling, musical instruments and art objects.
