The leaves are pinnate , 40–70 cm long, with 11-17 leaflets, each leaflet 5–10 cm long and 3–5 cm broad. The whole leaf is downy-pubescent, and a somewhat brighter, yellower green than many other tree leaves. The flowers are inconspicuous yellow-green catkins produced in spring at the same time as the new leaves appear. The fruit is a nut , produced in bunches of 2-6 together; the nut is oblong-ovoid, 3–6 cm long and 2–4 cm broad, surrounded by a green husk before maturity in mid autumn. Butternut grows quickly, but is rather short-lived for a tree, rarely living longer than 75 years.Key characteristics: Alternate, compound leaves Odd number of leaflets- has a terminal leaflet Fruit normally grows in groups of 2-3 and is lemon-shaped
