India will soon begin importing walnuts from California

India already imports 10-percent of California's almond crop. Now India has given the green light to imports of American walnuts.

That is good news for state agriculture since California grows about half a million tons of walnuts a year.

Walnuts are the state's fourth major farm export, accounting for a little more than a billion dollars for the state's economy.
