When do Pine Trees of our Neighborhood Produce Nuts?

Nuts of pine trees

We routine go shopping to our neighborhood Walmart super center for everything from grocery items to medicines.

We noticed that there are plenty of trees planted in parking lot areas. We guess those trees are pine trees like.

Here in Lousiana, we have several kind of pine trees, some of them are:
- The spruce pine tree (Pinus glabra)
- The longleaf pine tree (Pinus palustris)
- The loblolly pine tree (Pinus taeda)
- The slash pine tree (Pinus elliottii).
- The Virginia pine tree (Pinus virginiana)
- The shortleaf pine tree (Pinus echinata)

Two pine trees at parking lot.

Pine trees mainly are evergreen, but some species change their leaves color, green turn into red and brown in the autumn, then fall down.

We know that leaves of pine trees at our neighborhood have changed colors during fall season. The trees and leaves re-grow in the spring.

The trees produce nuts or seeds

We are quite surprising, after take a look closer to the branches that the trees are producing nuts or seeds at this time around, middle of May.

Like other trees in the northern hemisphere, the production followed the seasonal temperatures.

We read from literature that at least 20 species of pine trees produces nuts or seeds. Our pine nuts size is quite big enough with rounded shapes.

Most pine nuts are edible and good for sources of nutritional foods. Zero cholesterol and sodium.

Have you tried nuts of a pine tree?

  26. Pine nuts are expensive to buy so it would be fab to glean free ones right in the Walmart car park. You could make your own pesto :-)

  48. Evi,

    I've had pine nuts on foods prepared in restaurants but that's been a long time ago. It seems I liked it but I've never bought any in stores for use in my home meals but my youngest daughter uses pine nuts in her cooking. Interesting post. Have a blessed day!
