ORGANIC WALNUTS, raw, halves & pieces
Botanical name: Juglans regia
The most common edible species of walnuts are either the English walnut (J. regia) originated in Persia, and the black walnut (J. nigra) which is native to eastern North America. The black walnut is of high flavor, but due to its hard shell and poor hulling characteristics it is not grown commercially for nut production.
Qualities: unlike other nuts high in monounsaturated fatty acids, walnuts are composed largely of polyunsaturated fatty acids (72% of total fats), particularly alpha-linolenic acid (14%) and linoleic acid (58%), as well as oleic acid as 13% of total fats. Walnuts without shells are 4% water, 15% protein, 65% fat, and 14% carbohydrates, including 7% dietary fiber.
Common use: Walnut meats are available in either their shells or shelled. Our walnuts are shelled and raw. Walnuts are enjoyed in many culinary dishes, both savory and sweet, as well as baked goods and are delicious candied or pickled.
Storage: ideal temperatures for long term storage are −3 to 0 °C (27 to 32 °F) and low humidity

Walnuts! So Fresh!
I love these nuts....they are so fresh. I love them even more after I soak them in water overnight and pat them dry. The sweetest nuts ever. I store my 5 lb. bag in the freezer to maintain freshness. Thank you OM for your quality products!
Quilty is definitely there!
These walnuts are so fresh
These walnuts are so fresh and delicious. They aren't bitter at all! Love them like everything I order from OM foods!
Those walnuts were absolutely fabulous! They were fresh and tasty. It was the 2017 crop. Can’t wait to get some 2018 ones next year! Thank you omfoods!
Has anyone tried this new batch? Looks like the new crop. I am thinking about a larger oder. It's great that the price has come down but not sure about the quality. Thanks!
