Wet walnuts are just fresh ordinary walnuts. They are only around at this time of year. They have a distinctly different taste to ordinary ones. A bit like the beech nuts I used to eat as a kid. They also taste like the walnuts you get around the edge of a particular French cheese.
They seem like a bit of a London tradition. The fruit and veg stall at Tatchbrook St market in Pimlico always has them. (Just confirming I shop in SW1 rather than SE1!)But I would expect Borough Market
to have them as well.
