Have you ever seen those green tennis ball looking fruits on the ground during the fall? Those are black walnuts and they are edible! There are a bunch of black walnut trees by the IRC that still have tons of fruit on them so we will collect the fruit that’s on the ground and then process the nuts when we are done foraging.

The walnut hulls are juicy and stain EVERYTHING, so please bring rubber or leather gloves so your hands don’t get stained when we remove the hulls. After removing the hulls, the nuts need to be washed and then dried for a couple weeks which you can do at home.

Here is a detailed guide on the harvesting process from start to finish:

The plan:
5:00 pm – meet at Mem gym and then walk over to the IRC to harvest the walnuts
6:30 pm – finish foraging and hulling the walnuts and walk back to Mem gym or wherever you need to go

What to bring:
– rubber or leather gloves!
– large container or bag to store the nuts that you do not mind getting a bit dirty
– boots to stomp the nuts (optional)
