Guys have any of you heard of Pig Nut trees? I was at work Friday and I looked out the window of the house I was working on and saw a tree with this little round baby apple looking things on them so I went to pick one and showed a guy I was working with and he said they call them Pig Nuts. I had never heard of this and was wondering if any of you had.
People in my neck of the woods call one of the hickory trees hognut or pignut hickory, I would guess that is what you saw. When the green husk splits open there is a verry hard shelled nut inside. You can eat thembut they are bitter, that is if you can open the shell, you won't do it with your teeth.
