Shagbark Hickory Nut
The Shagbark Hickory is a large deciduous tree that reaches 40 meters in height and can live for 200 years. The nuts are gathered in the fall in the eastern US, from Maine to eastern Texas. Though the trees are seldom grown commercially, their nuts are edible and are championed by those who know the taste personally. The flavor of the nut is sweet and very rich with no trace of bitterness. Besides the nuts, hickory is also a highly coveted wood used in wood-burning stoves because of its high caloric content and smoky flavor; these characteristics also make the wood preferred for smoke-curing meats. The Shagbark is generally found at local farmers markets in Madison, Wisconsin.
Everything that is available at the market is grown or made in Kosciusko County. We are open from May 1 to October 31. Hours are Monday & Wednesday 2:30 to 5:00 and Saturdays 8:00am to 12:00pm or 'til sold out. (more...)
