Origin of walnuts

Walnut is a very old tree, originally from Persia, quickly acclimated in Greece. The nut was introduced into Europe by the Romans, and Greeks appreciated it for its oil. Called” Jovis Glans” or “Nut of Jupiter” , a deep respect was doomed to this dry fruit whose nutritional value were already being peddled by doctors of antiquity. In the eleventh century certain fees were paid in bushels of walnuts (old measure of capacity) In France, walnut culture developed from the nineteenth century in two regions: Perigord and Dauphiné
