Shagbark Hickory (carya ovate) nuts. 糙皮山胡桃樹的堅果.

One of the native hickory species.  Very hardy.  Best growing in full sun location.  The shaggy bark is making this tree easily identified.  Small flowers in mid spring and edible nuts mature in late fall.  Nuts attract birds and other wild animals.   USDA Zones:3-9.  Mature size:40′(H)/(W).  Propagate by seeds.  Wood are used for smoking meat, gives flavor to food and are used for making tools and equipements requie higher strength, such as axe handles, ploughs, skis, and drum sticks…etc.

它是這裡原生的山胡桃的一種.  非常強健耐寒.  最好栽種於全日照處.  它樹皮獨特的糙皮令它容易辨識. 春天開很小不起眼的花,花後結果,秋末果實才會成熟.  堅果除了人可食用外也吸引不少野生動物前來覓食.  耐寒也頗耐熱.  成熟株高40呎高/寬幅.  多以種子來繁殖.  它的木片可用來燻肉,它的木製容器增加食物飲料風味,木材很高耐力,經久耐用常用以製造需高耐用度耐久的工具,如:斧頭柄,鼓槌等…

  1. We collected hickory nuts this Fall at an apple orchard here in New Hampshire. They are very hard nuts to crack, we have to use a hammer instead if a nut cracker! The nuts are similar to pecans or walnuts. Since they are so hard to crack, the nuts usually end up smashed into tiny pieces, so the best use tends to be for baking. They can be used in place of hazelnuts, pecans, or walnuts.
