California Nutmeg

(Torreya californica)

"The California nutmeg, a small tree which has much the same appearance as a young redwood, from which it may, however be readily distinguished by its larger, sharp-pointed leaves, its olive-like fruit, and its white or straw-colored wood. ...When the whole nut is well roasted, it has a very agreeable aromatic taste somewhat like that of peanuts. These nuts are highly esteemed for food by the Indians, and they are sometimes gathered in considerable quantity."
