I have a three segment walnut. I checked your last response but tht elinks are out of date, How rare is this nut?
Thanks for the question. I do not know how rare the three segment walnut is. I would be curious to see a picture of the walnut in question.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more questions.
I have never seen one myself, however, genetic mutations or more likely two seeds developing together forming the observed structure. It is also possible that some error in the seed development provess which is somewhat elaborate could have taken place as well.
