    Kitchen Dictionary: walnut

    walnut

    The fruit of the walnut tree, which grows throughout the world in temperate climates. The two main varieties are Persian/English and Black. The Persian walnut is often incorrectly known as "English Walnut" in the United States. The black nuts are edible, but have a smaller kernel and an extremely tough shell and are not widely grown for nut production. The word "walnut" originates from wahlnut, an Old English word for "Welsh-nut." Walnuts were a delicacy of the ancient Romans and were used not only for eating but also to dye wool and color hair.

    plural: walnuts
