Juglans is a plant genus of the family Juglandaceae, the seeds of which are known as walnuts. They are deciduous trees, about 30–130 ft, with pinnate leaves 7–35 in, with 5–25 leaflets; the shoots have chambered pith, a character shared with the wingnuts (Pterocarya), but not the hickories (Carya) in the same family.

The 21 species in the genus range across the north temperate Old World from southeast Europe east to Japan, and more widely in the New World from southeast Canada west to California and south to Argentina.
