Walnut (binomial name Juglans regia) also known as common walnut, English walnut or Persian walnut is an Old World walnut tree species native to the region stretching from the Balkans eastward to the Himalayas and southwest China.[1]

WandloreEdit

Highly intelligent witches and wizards ought to be offered a walnut wand for trial first, because in nine cases out of ten, the two will find in each other their ideal mate. Walnut wands are often found in the hands of magical innovators and inventors; this is a handsome wood possessed of unusual versatility and adaptability.[2]

A note of caution, however: while some woods are difficult to dominate, and may resist the performance of spells that are foreign to their natures, the walnut wand will, once subjugated, perform any task its owner desires, provided that the user is of sufficient brilliance. This makes for a truly lethal weapon in the hands of a witch or wizard of no conscience, for the wand and the wizard may feed from each other in a particularly unhealthy manner.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit
