The horse chestnut is a majestic tree present in our city streets, parks and gardens where it is appreciated for its beauty. It has corn-on-the-cob-shaped masses of white or pink flowers and its fruits are like mini, spherical hedgehogs, covered in spines. Its spines are more spaced out and less pointed than those of the sweet chestnut tree whose fruits are edible.
