History/Lore

Early settlers loved these tasty nuts. They were not only great eating but also easy to ship and market in the cities for cash. But those pioneers went about gathering their bounty in a very unfortunate fashion. To get to the entire crop, they would chop the tree down, harvesting that season’s crop and leaving the tree to rot in the woods. This short-sighted approach led to the trees eventually becoming scarce.
