Anyone Recognise What Tree These Are From?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find out what tree these seed pods are from. The coins for scale are 1p & 5p.

 

The pods are at various stages having dropped at various times.

They look like hazelnut or closely related cobnut to me.

Agree Hazelnuts.

The ones with the holes are probably where squirrels have eaten the nut.

I have broken a few open but so far they appear to be empty :huh:

I've just cracked open 3 pods  that had no holes or breakage. They were empty too.

All the pods in the original post were gathered from the ground. They probably fell prematurely before the seeds/nuts had developed.

Definitely hazelnuts. It seems to be a good year for them - although I haven't checked the contents!

Sometimes trees have  a bumper year of their seed/fruit and the following year virtually nothing. I`ve noticed that with my apple tree.

That's right. They have fallen from the tree before developing fully.
