Hickory tree (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

pecan

'hickory tree' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for pecan that I've seen before include "Type of nut" , "Smooth pinkish-brown nut, nice in pie" , "Nut tree of the southern United States and Mexico" , "Oval nut of south central United States" , "US nut tree" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times, the L.A. Times Daily, The Independent, The Mirror and The Telegraph.
