2021 will be a stellar year for hickory nuts!

2021 will be a stellar year for hickory nuts! Well, as many of you know, 2020 season was abysmal, but let’s not dwell in the past. This season is going to make up for it! As usual, I’ve been watching the hickory trees this summer. Now it’s the first day of September. I’ve been tracking over 400 trees for five years. Many of the trees that have never produced a nut are laden this year. Not only that, the trees have a LOT of nuts on them.

This season everything has been coming in early: beans, tomatoes, berries, etc. The hickory trees are following suit; it seems that the trees are going to drop their nuts a few weeks early this year too. That’s my guess. That means they may be ready as soon as mid-October.

If you haven’t already, sign up for my alert to be notified as soon as they are ready to ship. Like I said, 2021 will be a stellar year for hickory nuts!

Plus, this is my first year to purchase hickory nuts. My goal is to make hickory nuts the next great nut! The next step is to figure out how to get them out of the shell with a machine.

  1. How many cups of nuts can you pick out of the four pounds of whole nuts in the shells?? I know it is approximate but just on average.

    1. Hi Nelda, you ask a great question! I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t know the pounds to cups conversion. I don’t think they go very far. I would guess that a pound is somewhere between 1/8 and 1/4 cup. Enough guessing! It’s time to do this work and find out! I’ll try to report back.
