cut the skin on the nut and rub the oil on your arm. if it stains your skin and wont come off, its a walnut and you now have a homemade farmers tan




Definitely looks like a Black Walnut and if so, the tree it comes from is worth some $$$$

FYI, the flesh around a green walnut is the absolute best cure for ringworm. Cleared up a severe case I had as a teenager in just a few days.

Looks like a hickory nut that a squirrel chewed on the green outer shell of one in your hand.

They taste great, but are an absolute pain in the @#$ to crack open and get the meat out of them.

I think you are more correct after looking at the pic again a Black Walnut is normally larger


or he has really large hands

Hickory nut. Like has already been said, they are the best nut ever! But you'll starve eating them.

Hickory nut.

Collect them, let them dry for a few days, then crack them in a vise to get to the meat.

Yep i have those hickory nuts all over my place. My driveway was covered up in shavings from the squirrels for about a month. Ended a couple weeks ago though.

You are definitely correct about being the best nut ever. I cracked some open for my girlfriend for her to try for the first time this year. She doesn't have the patience for it though, lol.....

I grew up eating them with my neighbor / adopted grandad when I was a kid. We had at least 20 hickory trees, so we would sit for hours on the back porch cracking them with a hammer and picking the meat out with pocket knives (occasionally with a pecan/nut pick), while he recounted old stories.
