Walnut is the theme of several romantic and lovely tales, both in the East and the West. The Tchaikovsky Nutcracker ballet, which combines dance and music, tells the story of how Clara saved the Nutcracker, who later transformed into a gorgeous prince in a dream and led her to the sugar realm.

The history of the walnut

In Chinese history, the legend of the origin of the walnut was named in the Western Han Dynasty. Zhang Qian returned with the fruit at that time after being sent to the Qianghu in the Western Regions. The fruit is known as a walnut because of its peach-like form. The walnut pulp is oily and sweet, very precious. It was only used as an offering for the emperor to eat, and it carried a symbol of emperor-like dignity. Various legends and fairy tales make people have a beautiful imagination of walnut.

The wood of walnut

The black walnut tree species from North America is most commonly used in wood building materials. This tree species is one of the most expensive hardwood species in North America due to its superior quality, beautiful color, and superb texture as well as its resistance to insects and corrosion. Walnuts have almost milky white sapwood and light to dark brown heartwood that occasionally has purple or chocolate streaks. Some walnuts have a wavy grain and visible growth rings, creating an attractive natural totem.
