The Juglans regia 'Red Rief', also known as the Red-Fruited Walnut Red Rief, is a very special cultivar of the common walnut tree.



The Juglans regia 'Red Rief' originally comes from Austria.


Red Flesh and Nuts

The most distinctive feature of this Juglans regia 'Red Rief' is the red flesh, which becomes visible when the nut is ripe and cracked open. The nut is also very flavorful and very rare. They are often used by pastry chefs as a true delicacy.



The Juglans regia 'Red Rief' is a self-pollinating cultivar, but will produce even more fruit if a pollinating Juglans variety is nearby.



The Red-Fruited Walnut thrives well in a nutritious soil that is slightly moist to dry. If the tree is too wet, it will die. This tree does well in a location with full sun to partial shade.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
