What defines a 'black' walnut versus a green one?

Pickled Peanut | Aug 20, 2009 11:15 AM

I've been looking up several recipes for pickling walnuts, like this one http://recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/1... , and all of them say to use either (depending on the recipe) "green" or "black" walnuts. Which is the kind I would find in a store like Whole Foods labeled generically as "walnuts"? Or is it just a difference in how ripe they are?

Thanks!
