Such interesting seed pods, they look huge and is that a little flower in each one?

The chestnuts are so spiky one can not handle them. Mine look just the same now they are edible ones.
The photo is great. Thanks Luiz for your dedication.

Naturegirl disse...

As a child I would climb the chestnut trees and pick those prickly things to find the chestnut hidden inside!
I am in Canada could these be the same chestnut trees we have here?

Hi Luiz
Lovely pictures - that is one big chestnut tree - I have also one growing in the garden, not as big yet, and it also bears these very spikey fruits. I am looking forward to participating often in Today's Flowers. Thanks and Cheers

They also grow in Austria, but only in warm regions, not in the Alps!
We call them "Maroni".
