Lie this is known as Horse Chestnut in England....the fruit conkers.....We make a hole in the fruit and put string though it to hang downwards, then while one person holds one string the other person tries to hit it with another fruit on a string...the aim is to smash it.. A traditional childrens game...

Already blossoming !! In Swiss German we call it "Rosskastanienbaum" as only horses can eat its fruits....

At the time my son was a child we did create with its fruits little animals, men and so on...fixed with wooden sticks !! ;°)
