The Moldavian seedlings that we offer were obtained from a talented breeder who has dedicated over 50 years to the walnut — Nikolay Fedorovich Kiktenko. He has developed unique proprietary varieties and forms resistant to drought, low temperatures, and diseases, which will delight you even in the harsh climate of the Baltics.
At the same time, there are also local walnut varieties growing in the Baltic states that fruit successfully, maintain good quality, and have an unmatched taste, like any other product grown in northern latitudes. In our plant nursery we work with such varieties as well.
The preliminary results are auspicious, and we believe that the seemingly unattainable goal of creating a productive walnut orchard in the Baltic states is becoming closer.
Even with the most basic calculations, with a yield of 1.5 tons per hectare, one hectare can bring in € 1000 in net profit, while wheat and other grains produce around € 500. Moreover, a walnut orchard will stay with you and your family for many years, and you can’t put a price on that.
