Bothfruit and pollen flowers are evident in the top image. Note the large teminal leaflet and the increasing size of leaflets from the base of the branch. Black Walnut terminal leaflet is smaller than adjacent ones and the leaflets are largest at mid-branch. Butternut fruits are tapered and sticky versus the Black Walnut which is globular and smooth. Young bark is smooth at first then lightly ridged. Mature bark is light brown-gray and strongly cross ridged. The Butternut is now listed as an endangered specie because of disease.
