Any idea where I will be able to find green walnuts in NYC when the season arrives (June-ish?)? I am raring to make nocino, after tasting it in Ticino some years ago.

There are some walnut trees in Prospect Park.

Response by poster: Thanks for the Prospect Park tip. I'll investigate that as well.

English walnuts? The nuts taste RADICALLY different; I assume the shells would too (but I don't know for sure).

All native varieties, and most trees you'll encounter, are black.

Nasty blackses, we hates them, Precioussss.
