Pignut Hickory - Carya glabra Walnut Family (Juglandaceae)

Pignut hickory’s nutritious nuts attract wildlife.1

Pignut hickory is best planted in a park-like area where its large size, leaf litter, fruit and twig drop will not be problems.1

Pignut hickory fruit has a small kernel with variable flavor, usually bitter and is fit to be eaten only by “pigs and other animals.”1
