A nut is a hard-shelled indehiscent fruit of some plants. While a wide variety of dried seeds and fruits are called nuts in English, only a certain number of them are considered by biologists to be true nuts. Nuts are an important source of nutrients for both humans and wildlife.

Nuts are a composite of the seed and the fruit, where the fruit does not open to release the seed. Most seeds come from fruits, and the seeds are free of the fruit, unlike nuts such as hazelnuts, hickories, chestnuts and acorns, which have a stony fruit wall and originate from a compound ovary. Culinary usage of the term is less restrictive, and some nuts as defined in food preparation, like pistachios and Brazil nuts, are not nuts in a biological sense. Everyday common usage of the term often refers to any hard-walled, edible kernel as a nut.

Some fruits and seeds that do not meet the botanical definition but are nuts in the culinary sense:

Almonds, pecans and walnuts are the edible seeds of drupe fruits the leathery "flesh" is removed at harvest.

  • Brazil nut is the seed from a capsule.
  • Candlenut (used for oil) is a seed. Is considered a true nut
  • Cashew nut is a seed.
  • Chilean hazelnut or Gevuina
  • Horse-chestnut is an inedible capsule.
  • Macadamia nut is a creamy white kernel (Macadamia integrifolia and Macadamia tetraphylla).
  • Malabar chestnut
  • Mongongo
  • Peanut is a legume.
  • Pine nut is the seed of several species of pine (coniferous trees).
  • Pistachio nut is the seed of a thin-shelled drupe.
