    How to Find and Pick Buckeyes

    The Buckeye is the American version of the European Horse Chestnut (aka Conker). :)

    I forgot to mention that humans cannot eat the Buckeye nut as is. I believe there is a lengthy process involved in making them edible for humans however I'm not familiar with it. We stick to eating the Peanut Butter and Chocolate candy version of the Buckeye :)

    Buckeye has been used by people for health purposes since ancient times. Arthritis, Hemorrhoids, Varicose Veins, reduction of Edema and as a salve to heal rashes and sores. In Ohio we make necklaces, bracelets, and earrings with them as a way to show our team spirit for The Ohio State Buckeyes!
