PLEASANT HILL, Mo. -- If you have black walnut trees, you may have cursed their 'fruit' a few times when you went to mow your lawn.

The 'mess' they produce could mean some extra cash in your pocket, though, and that could change how you feel about them.

Collect enough black walnuts and you can sell them at more than 200 hulling sites across the Midwest.  You won't get rich, but it could be fun. Black walnuts generally reap about 13 cents a pound.  One woman we talked to said she collected three barrels of nuts and made $25.

To drop of your black walnuts at Moore Farm, featured on Fox 4, call Julie Rawlings:
