Delicious, nutritious Grade A SHELLBARK hickory nuts.
- You want to talk about niche! Shellbarks are delicious and rare. They are sweeter and less “nutty” than shagbarks. In fact they sort-of taste like bananas. This year I only got 8 pounds total, so they are priced accordingly.
- They can be tough to crack, so I recommend that you purchase this cracked from me (unless you have a black walnut cracker)
I carefully weigh them and bag them up in a freezer bag ready for storage. Then I ship them off.
I RECOMMEND BUYING SHELLBARKS CRACKED. Shellbarks have thick, hard shells. They are much more difficult to crack than Shagbarks; they are almost impossible with a hand cracker or Texan York Sheller.
If you want to crack them yourself you will need a black walnut cracker.
These hickory nuts are shellbark hickory nuts harvested in October 2020 from wild trees in south, central Pennsylvania (Adams County).
