All About Acorns

Everything You Need to Know in a Nutshell

What are acorns?

Acorns, also known as the oak nut, is the nut that falls off of oak trees and other trees that are relatives of the oak. It usually contains a single seed that is enclosed in a tough, smooth shell. They can be anywhere from one to six centimeters long, and anywhere from 0.8 to four centimeters wide. They are edible and contain 110 calories per ounce. In the fall, acorns produce increased amounts of toxins which can lead to the ulceration of the mouth, esophagus, and gastrointestinal tract. Although edible, they should not be consumed by humans if there is an option.
