Variation of Juglans nigra in central Texas and south-central Oklahoma should be studied; specimens seemingly intermediate between J. nigra and both J. major and J. microcarpa have been seen from this area. E. C. Twisselman (1967) incorrectly reported that J. nigra was locally naturalized in California; his specimens were all J. hindsii (possibly introgressed with J. nigra) and J. californica.
Juglans nigra is frequently cultivated as an ornamental, and the nuts are prized for their strong, distinctive flavor.
Native Americans used Juglans nigra medicinally as a miscellaneous disease remedy, a dermatological aid, and a psychological aid (D. E. Moerman 1986).
