Shagbark Hickory (carya ovata): Gathered from local cold hardy productive hickory trees. Considered by many to be the best tasting nut in the world.
Bitternut Hickory (carya cordiformis): AKA the Oil nut. Some of the most beautiful tree forms on Earth.
Thin shelled nuts are bitter, but when pressed for oil, the oil tastes amazing, just like shagbark flavor. All the bitterness is water soluble. These nuts are easy to press because of their ultra thin shells. One of the greatest sources of perennial vegetable oil on the planet.
