The deciduous tree can grow to 100 feet , and as the name regia says, it is truly a king among trees. It has unisexual flowers that are pollinated by the     wind. The male flowers are catkins that hang on the twigs from the previous year. The female flowers grow in twos or threes at the ends of new twigs. The fruit nuts have a green, pulpy husk that splits to free the ripe nut. The Balkans, Asia Minor and the Middle East are the home of Juglans regia. In the rest of Europe , the tree has become common. It does not survive hard winters well.
