Picture of a Conker
English Conker (Horse Chestnut) about to break from it's shell. Although this nut has been used for
centuries in the English sport of Conkers, it's not a native tree. Introduced from Southeast
Europe in the seventeeth century, it is believed to have been given the name Horse Chestnut to
differentiate it from the Sweet Chestnut. Horse, because the empty shell sometimes looks like a horse shoe.
The Conker is very hard and inedible.
