Juglans microcarpa, also known as little walnut or Texas walnut, is a small to medium-sized tree that is native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. This deciduous tree is prized for its beautiful, deeply furrowed bark, and small, flavorful nuts that are a favorite of local wildlife. It is found in dry, hot regions in both part shade and sun. 20-30' at maturity.
The leaves of the Juglans microcarpa are pinnately compound, meaning they are made up of multiple smaller leaflets that are arranged on either side of a central stem. In the fall, the leaves turn a beautiful yellow color before dropping to the ground.
