Juglandaceae -- Walnut family

    L. C. Maisenhelder and John K. Francis

    Nutmeg hickory (Carya myristiciformis), also called swamp hickory  or bitter water hickory, is found as small, possibly relict  populations across the South and in northern Mexico on rich moist  soils of higher bottom lands and stream banks. Little is known of  the growth rate of nutmeg hickory. Logs and lumber are sold mixed  with other hickories. The nuts are an oil-rich food for wildlife.
