2011/308: Nuts!

Pretty sure they are pecans, even though they are rounder than the normal pecan.
Greg – who hates pecans – tasted one and said they could be walnuts, but nope, I still think they are pecans. They were too small, and the shell was too smooth to be walnuts.

    • We found these in Sulphur, OK, and no, we didn’t collect any to snack on.

    • That’s what it looks like, doesn’t it? But (unfortunately, because I love hazelnuts) it came from a tree, and when you crack them open, they definitely don’t look like hazelnuts.

  3. I LOVE pecans! I had a friend in Georgia who had a tree and she mailed me a large envelope full of them. So awesome!

    • We have a pecan tree in our backyard, and there’s at least one more on our street.

    It is an immature walnut, you can even see the lines where it will get wrinkly. It was a very nasty tasting walnut which I would hope would have improved if not for the drought.

    they are walnuts. what gives it away is the way the inside resembles the grooves on a brain. but they have the smoothest shells i have ever seen on a walnot. No not hazelnuts, too big and no not pecans

    • Pecans do look a little like walnuts, though.
      The main reason I think they are pecans is because you see LOTS of pecan trees in Oklahoma (and Texas). Haven’t seen a walnut tree.
