Identify hickory please
We have an old farm with the usual shagbark, black, and mockernut hickory trees. There is one unusual hickory tree we've been unable to I.D. The nuts fall about a month later than the other hickories. The hulls are about handball size, kind of oval, and avocado green. The shell looks like an English walnut - much larger and browner than other hickory nuts. The meat is much bigger and easier to get out also. It tastes closer to a pecan than a hickory nut. The girl at the information desk at the Conservation dept. said her father-in-law had a tree he called a "hickon" tree. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks to all who take the time to respond!
