Californian Walnut Halves

  • The walnut like other so called nuts are botanically not classed as a nut but a seed. The edible seed is called a drupe.

  • The drupe has a green/grey sponge like texture this is called the hull.

  • Inside there is a ridged uneven wooden shell which holds the nut. In between the two halves of the walnut is a thin membrane which helps to protect the nut.

  • When the fruit matures, the hull, which becomes hard and brittle, falls away from the hard wooden shell, from the tree.

  • China holds the record for the world with 51% sales (3.8 million tonnes) yearly. The Chinese walnuts tend to be smaller in size and also have a darker skin than the Californian ones. You can also get walnuts from Iran and Turkey.
