Ukraine ranks among the top 5 countries by export volume of peeled walnuts in the world. In 2020 the export volume on a kernel basis was over 46,000 tons, of which more than 24,000 were exported to European countries.

Since 2016, the areas of walnut orchards in Ukraine have increased by 1,000 ha annually, with the government subsidizing the planting of small and medium-sized orchards (up to 30 ha). Production growth is expected to be 8-11% annually from 2022-2027.

Ukrainian walnut

Compared to American varieties (Chandler, Serr), Ukrainian walnuts have a harder shell that is more strongly integrated into the kernel. The yield of the kernel does not exceed 38%. Compared to the Serr and Chandler varieties where the yield is about 45-55%, the lower yield due to hard shell affects to the cost of produced kernels, makes them more expensive to the processor, but it also gives longer shelf life to the raw walnuts, while they are stored in in-shell condition. Ukrainian varieties of walnuts contain 15% more fatty acids compared to American varieties and have a more pronounced aroma and flavor.
