A nut is a fruit consisting of a hard or tough nutshell protecting a kernel which is usually edible.
In general usage and in a culinary sense, a wide variety of dry seeds are called nuts, but in a
botanical context "nut" implies that the shell does not open to release the seed (indehiscent).
Most seeds come from fruits that naturally free themselves from the shell, but this is not the case
in nuts such as hazelnuts, chestnuts, and acorns, which have hard shell walls and originate from
a compound ovary. The general and original usage of the term is less restrictive, and many nuts
(in the culinary sense), such as almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, and Brazil nuts,are not
nuts in a botanical sense. Common usage of the term often refers to any hard-walled, edible
kernel as a nut.Nuts are an energy-dense and nutrient-rich food source.
