No. Catalpa spp.
Not an edible.

I agree with Lucky, its a Catalpa.

On the plus side, it is an interesting flowering tree (but on the minus side I remember the leaves all sticky by this time of year and the stickyness can affect things below the tree as well).

a little foot note. My granddad used to keep a Catalpa tree just for the big green worms that would get on it. GREAT fishing worms. I remember catching many a crappie on those worms.
