'Indiana' Native seedling discovered in the early 1900's by M. J. Niblack and W. C. Reed. Original tree stood west of Oaktown, Knox County, IN, and was thought to be a natural seedling of the nearby 'Busseron' ortet. Introduced 1909. Nut: oblong, with obtuse apex and obtuse to rounded base; laterally compressed in cross section; 75 nuts/lb, 47% kernel. Protogynous, with mid-season pollen shed and mid-season pistillate receptivity. Used as a seedstock in the 1960's by Linwood Nursery, CA, under the name 'Linwood', but abandoned due to slow growth of seedlings.
