Castanea sativa by declerckmarian

The chestnut is easily recognizable by the long, coarsely serrated lance-shaped leaves.The fruits are leathery, shiny brown nuts. Usually there are three meetings in a yellow-brown, spiny, fairly large fruit cup This open with four flaps. The spines are a kind of defense weapon against premature attack by birds and squirrels. via 500px
