With current market prices of around 2.5$ / kg of in-shell walnuts, a single tree can produce anywhere between 70 and 100$ on an annual basis.

Of course, every investment has its downfalls, and the disadvantage of investing in walnut tees is the wait. For the first 3 years, the tree must mature and developed. Starting year four the trees enter their productive period and can be exploited for the next 40 years. Providing for a perfect source of passive income!
