Great taste starts with great walnuts
As most other nuts, the walnut is originally from Asia and has been spread by ancient humans via trade (Silk Road, marine trade) and cultural expansion. English merchants transported the product from ports to ports around the world and walnuts became known as “English Walnuts.” Even if actually, England has never grown walnuts commercially.
The global walnut crop is around 880 820 MT (in kernel, source INC). China is the biggest walnut producer in the world, accounting for around 40% of the global production. The United States come second with around 30% of the global crop. Far behind, a lot of other countries also produce walnuts, such as : Chile, Iran, Ukraine or France.
La Morella Nuts source currently all of its walnuts in Spain. The Spanish crop, even if not among the biggest, is progressively growing.
