Walnuts. Juglans nigra L. - black walnut or American Walnut.
http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?IDYXM 15 October 2008 Walnuts
Most people avoid these nuts in the wild due to not knowing how to get at the meat. There is a walnut tree along my walking path, and 220 nuts about 12 pounds were collected from the tree and from the ground below. These nuts were processed and the pictures indicate the process. At this stage of dryness the meat completely fills the nut case, and crackling is almost impossible without complete shattering. As the meat dries the membranes shrink and cracking is facilitated.

I found the type of walnut tree depicted. Juglans nigra L. - black walnut or American Walnut.

I spilled some of the nut washing water on the grass and instantly the earthworms rose to the surface, and have since died. The tree produces a toxin called Juglone, which inhibits growth of many plants. This toxin insures few plants grow around the base of a Juglans nigra L. - black walnut. It is probably prudent to not grow these trees in a backyard garden, or utilize any part of, in the compost heap.

Black walnut (Juglans nigra L.)
http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?BAPAP 17 October 2008 (Juglans nigra L. - black walnut) or American Walnut.
A friend informed me about a walnut tree, and I visited and got about 20 lbs. On the way home I saw a tree along the road and got another 20 pounds. The walnuts were processed and the total nuts were 650 about 36 pounds. They will be cured and used this winter for food. Total time processing was 3 hours and 20 minutes.
