Get the right nut

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Diy Food -

You can tell the dif­fer­ence be­tween a ‘conker' – an ined­i­ble horse chest­nut – and an ed­i­ble chest­nut by the spikes on the outer shell. Horse chest­nuts have short bumpy spikes on a smooth ball-shaped fruit where you can see the sur­face be­tween the spikes, whereas ed­i­ble chest­nuts are su­per prickly like lit­tle hedge­hogs. Once shelled, ed­i­ble chest­nuts have a point, conkers don't.
