Green balls (hickory nuts??)

Postby Rhiannonn2626 » Sun Oct 21, 2007 7:09 pm

We have this tree in our neighborhood that drops green balls a little larger that a golfball and inside is a hard shell nut....Anyone know what it is? Or if it is safe for flyers?

If the outside green shell is seperated into four equal parts it is probably a Hickory Nut. If it does not divide at all it is a Black Walnut. If you open the Black Walnut, do it using a baggie as a glove cause it stains very, very bad. Hope this helps.
