What's this?

4 posts in this topic

A lady, who does some casual gardening work for me, gave me this pod yesterday.

She didn't know anything about it other than the person who grew it called it an American Nut Tree.  On another occasion, she had referred to it as an Asian Nut Tree.  I couldn't make any sense out of either name...largely because the number of edible nut trees that grow in the Americas and Asia is huge - and I couldn't find any images that looked like what I had either.

This pod is not yet ripe...they go brown when ripe apparently.


So, anybody know what it is?

Bingo!  You nailed it, Ande.

Thank you for providing those links.....much appreciated.  I was given a small tree and I've planted it...and now I'm looking forward to see it yield these pods/nuts.
