Nuts about nuts

Does anyone know what type of nut this is?

They are growing in plentiful supply at the back of our house but we are unsure as to what they are. We suspect they are walnuts, and that we need to peel back the green outer layer, and then dry them out

But we are not sure.

Can anyone shed any light on this nutty mystery?

  1. Bex they are definitely walnuts, not yet ripe. In Autumn the outer husks will yellow and mottle, sometimes split then you can pick, peel and store. That’s if the squirrels don’t get them first! Lyn xxx

  2. Hi Yer Could be pecan, sort of softer relative of walnuts but I thought the outside of pecans were broken reddish. Maybe just not ripe? Don’t eat any with small holes in!! J x
