Hickory Nut Reviews

April 7, 2023

I hadn’t tasted shagbark hickory nuts since I was a kid, when my mother and I would drive through the Indiana countryside and look for that distinctive bark. I never see them for sale! So when I saw Ryan’s enthusiastic website, I had to try them. What a trip down memory land–just like I remember. Takes patience but so worth it.

I had a lot of difficulty finding hickory nuts. I used this site/vendor and the delivered nuts were purchased with ease.

These hickory nuts are so delicious! I had hickory trees on my property as a child, and these nuts were a wonderful way to recapture those memories. The 2021 batch is consistently mild with a slight honey note. I also loved the 2020 batch. Those ranged from very sweet, almost mapley to more herbaceous. Both batches are top quality!

Even though I missed the boat on getting fresh hickory nuts Ryan told me they had plenty from the previous year. I was doubtful about the quality but no problems. They were great. The size and quality were right on the money. No worries!

Finding Ryan was a blessing. From searching the landscape as a little boy to searching the web as an old guy, finding hickory nuts has always been a kick. Ryan has made it a breeze to stock up on the best nut around while maintaining an attractive price point – excellent shipping and communication too. WELL DONE!

Ryan was great to deal with. Shipping time was as expected. It was easy paying through pay pal. The hickory nuts taste great. It been a long time since I have had them. Good ones are hard to find in the wild as the squirrels get the good ones. I’ll definitely place another order. David Wolfe.

These nuts are bringing back some really good memories from my childhood of sweet hickories and messy blackwalnuts off the ground in the fall. So far every nut has been sweet and tasty and a slightly violent meditation in the middle of a busy day. It’s not quite the same using that scary texas cracker thing, instead of a sledge hammer, but urban living requires compromise! So far, no luck not eating them enough to collect enough for cookies, not sure I want to hide the taste anyways.

I hadn’t had hickory nuts before but wanted to try them. I found Ryan’s site in a Google search. Ryan was friendly and helpful, and got my order out promptly. The nuts I received were of good quality, and very flavorable. I just eat them raw. Getting past the shell to the nutmeat is harder in hickory nuts than any other nuts I’ve tried, so it takes some patience. I plan to buy again next season.

This is the second time I have order from Ryan. The first time I ordered cracked. It does take sometime to maneuver through, however mission accomplished. This year I ordered and just received whole hickories and purchased the Texas cracker mentioned on the website ( Thanks Ryan). I have not started in on the cracking, but I can say that sent coming from the hickories cannot be duplicated.
