Livermore Variety





Red walnuts were created by researchers at the University of California, Davis and the most popular Livermore variety was introduced in 2001.  Even though it’s an invented variety, the red walnut is not genetically modified.  The flavor tastes like a regular English walnut, but it’s bolder and less bitter with more of a creamy texture.
