Heartnut - Taylor
Our Taylor Heartnut seedlings are more hardy than those from warm climate nurseries ( Zone 5-8).....as we get some horribly cold -40 C winters( Zone 2-3) here on our farm. Our trees get subjected to a variety of harsh soil conditions(wet clay) as well. The ones that survive our breeding and selection process produce high quality, very tasty nuts that are smooth and buttery like our native Canadian butternut. The cold-acclimatized, Taylor heartnut trees now make it possible to expand nut growing into the colder regions of Canada. Plant two for cross pollination.
Our Canadian government is looking at ways to lower our greenhouse gas footprint(carbon dioxide production). We suggest planting heartnut trees for carbon sequestration( pulling the carbon dioxide out of atmosphere). Our scientific data shows that these trees lower greenhouse gases in atmosphere more than all the other trees in our study(100 other species). For example one heartnut tree will sequester more carbon than 1000 conifer trees( spruce, fir, pine, etc)...so why are we using conifers to offset jet fuel use( Air Canada)? Why not "buy " carbon credits from Heartnut growers? Also maybe Health Canada can promote use of more "carbon neutral" protein...like NUT MEAT ...rather than animal protein( beef, chicken, pork, etc)....just saying! Heartnuts are healthy for us and the planet!
