Deku Nuts are organic weapons that can be thrown, and have a chance to stun enemies.
They can be found in Deku Nut Clusters in various locations, mostly in Secret Grottos.
One in five Deku Nuts harvested from clusters are Mature Deku Nuts, which strike enemies with more force.

According to the Gossip Stones, Deku Nuts are a result of the migration of Deku Babas to Black Marsh. The plants that stayed in Skyrim adapted to the cold and became passive, producing only nuts, rather than carnivorous plants.
