you need green walnuts picked before the shell has formed. It maybe a bit late in season now. We picked ours at begining of month and they are at the drying stage ready to pickle/bottle in around 7days.
I can check our tree but dont really want to denude it at this stage as have a good crop this year and wont have any available at all next year.

I usually pickle them mid-December here - Bay of Plenty - with the difference in climate there in Dunedin, they may be right around now for you. Try contacting someone through:

- they may be able to put you onto someone local to you.

Have you tried the farmers market! seems to be a few central otago fruit growers there, they might be able to advise you, or try contacting some of them.
