Walnut: Publications and Research from SwissMixIt

Walnut Botanical Information

Walnuts are the nut of any tree of the genus Juglans (Family Juglandaceae), particularly the Persian or English walnut, Juglans regia.

A walnut is the edible seed of a drupe, and thus not a true botanical nut. It is commonly consumed as a nut.

After full ripening for its edible seed when the shell has been discarded, it is used as a garnish or a snack.

Nuts of the eastern black walnut (Juglans nigra) and butternuts (Juglans cinerea) are less commonly consumed. They are round, single-seeded stone fruits that grow from the walnut tree.

They are a good source of healthful fats, protein, and fiber. They may enhance heart and bone health and help in weight management, among other benefits.
