That’s Nuts!

Julie Hauser

Tu B’Shevat is around the corner, yet as it’s the middle of the winter and we don’t see blossoming trees, fruits are in the limelight. But did you know that tree nuts are also fruit? A nut can be defined as a “one-seeded fruit” and the “one seed” of this fruit is the nut you eat.

Nuts typically grow in warm and temperate climates (places without extreme or drastic changes in weather). Each kind of nut needs to “keep its passport up to date” because nuts do a lot of international travel.
