Broadview is the most popular Walnut variety grown in the UK, and is well-suited to the UK climate as well as being self-fertile.
Broadview trees are not as large as some walnuts, reaching a height of up to 6m / 20ft or so after 15-20 years, making this variety a good choice if you want a Walnut tree for your garden. It also has the benefit of being (in Walnut terms) relatively precocious - you should get some nuts after about 3-5 years.

Broadview is in flowering group . Broadview is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.
Important: advice about pollination
Like all walnuts, plant Broadview in a sunny and sheltered spot. It is particularly important to avoid areas where spring frosts will form.
As well as being self-fertile, Broadview is a good pollinator for other walnuts (some of which are not self-fertile).
Broadview is smaller than most walnut trees, and likely to reach a height of about 4m-6m (14ft - 20ft) after 10-20 years. Soil and climate can have a significant impact on the mature height and spread of walnut trees.
The picking season in the southern UK is towards the end of October.
Broadview was developed in the 1930s by brothers David and Jack Gellatly, of Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. They had experimented with nut growing for several years, and the original Broadview tree is thought to have been obtained from Odessa in southern Russia. It quickly became popular on account of its smaller tree size and relatively precocious nut-bearing. The Gellatly Nut Farm is now a protected regional park.
