Looks like a Hickory nut. Green is inedible. You have to get mature ones. The shell will turn black and open along those lines. Inside will be a light brown nut. You will need a hammer to open them or something similar. Taste great.
As for the second I cant tell its not close enough. Maybe blackberries?

Looks like a hickory to me too.

The berries could be blackberries or raspberries. When you pick a ripe one, raspberries are hollow (cupped) and blackberries are solid. But it does look like a blackberry, good eating either way.
