Out trying to find pecans which having no luck and found these. Its a oak tree and these look like giant acorns. Never seen such a thing. I am buying pecans for the first time in many years. Trees used in past cut down and trying to find a good public place with trees impossible!

Never saw Acorns that size or shape. I would think they were Pecans from the shape...JJ

So many different acorns varying by region. I've seen some whoppers here. Some similar to that size. Most of ours are common size though. You can see the watermark at the top of Brian's acorn where the hat would have initially been

Sounds like Burr Oak is right. Says largest acorns.


I've never seen such large acorns either so I guess I haven't ever been under a burr oak tree. Bet the wildlife love those, but I can't picture a chipmunk with one of those in each cheek!
