Nut Trees Album A Favorite Fruit For Fall And Winter

Nut trees album presents a variety of delicious favorites for your viewing pleasure. You can even add your own selections to the list. Come join our community today.

Almost everyone has a favorite nut. I bet you do too. Some nuts grow on trees, some in bushes and plants.

For example peanuts grow in plants.  The fruit of these plants grow underground.  So peanuts are actually legumes.  But people still refer to them as nuts.

My favorite nut is cashew.  I don't have pictures of either of these.  Perhaps you do.  I would love for you to share with our readers.

For now, I hope you enjoy this nut trees album of nut varieties I've taken in Illinois.

Your Nut Trees Album Adventure Begins Here...

We begin the nut trees album with an odd mix of nuts.  Acorns really are edible.  But I have never tried them. 

The same is true of pine nuts.  I've seen recipes that call for pine nuts, but I've never eaten them.  

And finally I just threw in the Coconut trees for a little fun on the name.  According to this site,  http://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/mysteries/coconut.html (link opens in new window) loosely speaking coconuts could be any of the follow three, 

  1. A nut
  2. A fruit
  3. A seed

Now isn't that interesting?

Pecans are popular to grow in Illinois and California.  Probably all over the US.  But I only had the chance to see them in these two states.  

One set by the luck of where I lived.  The others were growing where my family lived at the time, in Southern CA.

The kids and I went for a walk in their local neighborhood.  I was lucky enough to talk to the owner of these Pecan trees.  He was quite pleased with his babies.  They were working on their third year of fruit.

Next we have two stages of walnuts growing in Northern Illinois.  Black walnuts like the forest preserves.  I don't know if anyone ever harvests them.
