In Morocco, walnut is an ancient cultural heritage of mountain communities. The existence of very old walnut trees in some traditional plantations testifies of the antiquity of the tree, which was introduced in Morocco by the French when they colonised the country. Walnut has become of great social and economic importance to local population which considers it a noble product. Local population started to value the fruit by building traditional walnut oil extraction units generating an annual production of 700 tons of oil.
