Two green unripe bulbous walnuts are attached to each side of the stem near the bottom below the leaves. A brown textured walnut sits on the lower right, detached from the stem, ready to be harvested. Pairs of oval leaves opposite each other become slightly larger towards the top of the stem, with the largest leaf at the tip. Leaf veins are rendered in light green and radiate from the center line lengthwise of each leaf. Shadows give the branch and nuts dimensionality; the background is plain antique white. The Latin name is in the middle bottom.
