Bitternut, medium to large-sized tree (Carya cordiformis) of the walnut family, which grows mostly in low wet woods. Its name is derived from the tree's bitter-tasting nuts. Thin-shelled and cylindrical in shape, they contain a fat white kernel. Bitternut wood is used for making wooden crates and furniture.
