Sounds like the American Chestnut. Not many around any more though due to the blight .

This was a hard one as I could not give too much away. What I was looking for was American black walnut, Juglans nigra. as tom was almost ther I can let him have half a point!

For anyone who is interested (and can stay awake long enough) I found a whole lot of information HERE

Ralph :wink:
