Shagbark Hickory Nuts

bgator(6)July 25, 2012


I have what I believe a shagbark hickory tree in my front yard. last night we had a storm and this morning I have hundreds of green nuts all over my lawn. I read up a bit on harvesting these nuts but am still a little confused. Should I remove the outer green layer or wait until they turn brown?

Here you go. A previous discussion about them from folks that use them that should answer your questions I think.
