Hi, Hector and all,

     Here at North Carolina State University (NCSU) we call the Quercus
actissima the Sawtooth Oak.  There are a couple of groves planted on
campus.  They produce so many large acorns that the pavement is
practically covered each year.  I didn't realize they were edible. 
thanks for the information.  The cup of the acorn is strikingly
"frilly", I guess you would say.
