Walnuts are edible kernels obtained from tree belonging to the Juglandaceae family, in the genus, Juglan. The nuts have been revered since ancient times as symbol of intellectuality, since their bi-lobed kernels have convoluted surface inside the shell resembling as that of the human brain! The nuts are enriched with many health-benefiting nutrients, especially omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for optimum health.
During each season, walnut fruits are ready for harvesting by August, when their thick green hull begins to crack open to expose light brown, hard-shelled “walnut” inside. Each nut features roughly spherical in shape, about the size of a medium-sizedlemon, weighing about 10-15 g, and enclosing single (bi-lobed) edible kernel inside.
Structurally, the walnut kernel consists of two uneven, corrugated lobes, off white in color and covered by a papery thin, light brown layer. The lobes are partially attached to each other.
Oil extracted from the nuts, apart from cooking, has also been used as base or carrier oil in medicine, and in aromatherapy.
