When I first saw the tree, in Port Arthur of all places, I assumed it was another horse chestnut with green conkers, but there were no spikes, instead something smooth and satisfyingly weighted. I carried it around for a few days, speculating on what it might be before finally deducing that it was a walnut. I peeled and scraped away the flesh (which is extremely bitter and not enjoyable) to reveal a very pale quite hard, but clearly immature walnut.
