Walnuts are the nuts of any tree belonging to the genus Juglans. In general, only some types of walnuts are edible. Of these, only two types are specifically grown for consumption. One, the black walnut, is significantly rarer and not grown commercially. The other, most common type is known as the English or Persian walnut, which is referred to as the ‘walnut’. Despite its name, walnuts are actually the seeds of the fruits that grow on walnut trees; they are not botanically classified as nuts. Regardless, walnuts are often considered to be a part of the “dried fruits and nuts” category. After being extracted from the fruit, a walnut shell is a hard, segmented layer that must be cracked to get to the inner meat, which is the edible part of the walnut. Cracking walnuts can be a tiring and tedious process. Today, walnuts are commonly available in their post-shelled state.
