Available all-year round, look for ‘Produce of California’ or ‘Produce of USA’. Shelled walnuts are available in a variety of bag sizes from 100g to 250g . Look for them in the Produce section, snacking and baking aisles at your local supermarket. In-shell walnuts are typically found in the Produce section to purchase by weight. To discuss buying or supplying for wholesale, please contact our UK trade team.

When you bring walnuts home from the shop, the best place to store them is in your refrigerator or freezer, depending on when you’re going to use them. If you’re going to use the walnuts right away, place them in your refrigerator. If you’ll be storing them for a month or longer, keep them in your freezer. For more details, click here

California Walnut Commission (CWC), established in 1987 is funded by mandatory assessments of the growers. The CWC is responsible for export market development activities and conducts health research – 30 years putting plans into action.

Over 4,800 walnut growers and still growing – mostly multi-generational family farms. California represents 99% of United States production of walnuts and has an ever-growing presence throughout the rest of the world.
