NUT TRIVIA & FACTS

(see also links to specific nut trivia below)

· In everyday usage, a nut is an edible kernel which is inside a hard shell. 
· Botanically, a nut is a one seeded fruit enclosed in a woody or leathery covering called the pericarp.  A true nut does not split open when ripe, and its kernel is in one piece. 

There are 1.86 million acres of tree nuts in the United States. (2007)

When green nuts are harvested they contain about 50% or more water content, and must be dried to some degree for proper storage. The fat content of nuts varies from 70% in Macadamia nuts to about 4% in dried chestnuts.
