Shellbark. Shagbark

The _shellbark_ or shagbark hickory-nut is one of the best. The flavor,

as every one knows, is sweet and pleasant. It is the bark of the tree

that gives it the name of shagbark, for it separates into long, ragged

strips several inches wide which generally hold to the trunk at the

middle and give it an unkempt, shaggy appearance.
