Hickory Nuts

Shagbark Hickory trees are slow to produce nuts and maturity can take up to 30-40 years.

Most hickories have edible nuts and the pecan is grown commercially. The bitternut and pignut varieties are very bitter and unpalatable.

The pecan nut comes from a type of hickory tree that is native to south and central North America. It consists of seventy percent fat and is used mainly in desserts.

Hickory trees produce a bumper crop of nuts once every 3 years. The nut meat has a mild pleasant taste and they are dense in nutrients and healthy oils.

Most people do not like the taste of shagbark hickory nuts raw. However, when toasted, it is heralded as the "finest native North American nut"

The small kernel from the pignut hickory is not considered fit for human consumption. Therefore only eaten by pigs and other animals.

Harvesting Hickory Nuts

The best time to harvest hickory nuts is in the autumn when they fall off the trees. The husk is brown in color and splits open when the nut is ripe.

The nutmeat can be eaten raw as a snack or used in any recipe that calls for nuts.

The shells can also be used to create that wonderful hickory flavor to your meats on the barbecue or throw a few in the fireplace or wood stove to create a cozy aroma of hickory throughout your home.

Other trees that produce nuts include beech, butternut, chestnut, oak, palm, pecan and walnut.

Hickory Wood

Hickory wood tends to be strong and resilient and is often used to make tool handles, paddles, drumsticks and furniture because of its strength.

On average, Hickory is denser, stiffer, and harder than either White Oak or Hard Maple.

Hickory Wood Chips

Using hickory wood chips on your barbecue gives a traditional smoked flavor to beef, ribs or pork. They can also be used as an alternative heat source to charcoal briquettes on your grill.

Hickory Flooring

The spectacular grain pattern and color variation of hickory flooring can add a rustic flair to your room.

Hickory wood is also used to flavor meats such as ham and bacon because of the excellent flavor the smoke gives these meats when smoking or barbecuing.

The bark of the shagbark hickory is unique because it peels away from the tree in thin strips from 6 inches to as much as 4 feet in length and is used in the production of edible syrup.

Mature shagbark hickory trees are natural roost sites for bats. The sides of the trunk where the bark has lifted away provides a natural habitat for the bats to sleep during the day, hidden from potential predators.

Hickory Tussock Moth Caterpillar

The Hickory Tussock Moth caterpillar feeds on the leaves of hickory, walnut, ash, elm and oak trees from July to September in preparation for their cocoon stage.

The Hickory Tussock Moth caterpillar, although intriguing to look at, is considered poisonous and should not be handled.
