The Chinquapin is a large shrub or small tree that produces a dark-brown, sweet nut that is good for wildlife and is sold as well for human consumption in the regions where it is grown -- in dry lands from southern Pennsylvania to Florida and Texas, including here. Its nuts ripen earlier than the American chestnut.
