Description

Each of these natural seed pods grew from a water chestnut plant in the Hudson River. An invasive species, the pod was collected from the shore of the Hudson before it could germinate, baked to prevent it from growing, and treated to a touch of gold. A portion of every sale of each Golden Pod is donated to Riverkeeper, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the Hudson.

Each order is for 1 golden pod. You can also upgrade your order to include a small clear box and string, perfect for gift giving! The boxes are shipped flat, so must be assembled at home. This helps us keep shipping costs low. If you would like your golden pods to arrive fully assembled, please contact us directly.

These pods are natural, and so their appearance and size do vary. We select the largest and most visually stunning specimen to turn into golden pods, but please look at the images to see some of the variations in shape and size.

The Eurasian Water Chestnut was introduced to the United States in the 1800s and was first documented in the waters of New York around 1854. Today, the plant has taken hold of the Hudson and the pods have gained the nickname "devil pods" for their otherworldly shape and sharp spikes.
