Walnut (Family Juglandaceae)
The Juglandaceae, also known as the Walnut Family, is a family of
trees, or sometimes shrubs, in the order Fagales. Various members
of this family are native to the Americas, Eurasia, and Southeast Asia.
There are eight genera in the family, including the commercially im-
portant nut-producing trees walnut (Juglans), pecan (Carya illinoinensis),
and hickory (Carya). The Persian walnut, Juglans regia, is one of the
major nut crops of the world. Walnut, hickory, and gaulin are also
valuable timber trees.
