    Yummy! That looks deceptively big and juicy compared to any I have ever seen. Must be an extreme close-up. When my husband was a boy he had to pick out enough to make a pie once as a punishment.

      That must have taken a month! This nut, btw, is about an inch long. A friend tried a Bitternut recently, to her regret, so which hickory is no small distinction.

    I have mostly pignut hickories in my forest, and I understand the nuts are not so toothsome. (Hence the name?) I do have some walnut trees, but good luck getting any nuts from them before the squirrels do. My dozen pecan trees are still too young to bear. Mostly I rely on Subway to feed me when I’m in my woods.
