How to grow Lara walnut trees

Lara is more compact than some of the other modern French varieties, and also ripens a bit earlier, making it a good choice for growing in the UK.

Lara is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another different Walnut variety such as Franquette.

It can reach a height of up to 9m / 30ft after 20 years or so on good soil. Mature size with walnut trees is quite dependent on the soil and climate.
