Is a nut tree a fruit tree? an often asked question! The short  answer  is yes, for the whole of the nut is, the fruit of the tree.

FRIUT TREES Beech Nut               I want you to stop and think about nut allergies before you continue, if you have someone in the family that suffers with an allergy ( especially little ones) consider that when the fruit tree nut is ripe will they ( without your knowledge) pick one up and eat it???  Some of us are lucky and do not have this  problem, all I am suggesting is that you bear it in mind if you are thinking of planting a nut tree! There is no way I am suggesting not to have one, as the blossom together with the fruit tree nuts and perfume of some of the trees is a bonus everyone deserves, let alone that when the fruit of the nut tree is in bloom it can be a “picture” and maybe the focal point in your garden.

On the other hand you may select a particular fuit tree bearing nuts for the thought of growing your own favourite nut, this is a practical idea, for your garden will start to give the produce that you like and enjoy, remember nuts from the tree have a longer storage life than most fruit and I have always suggested that whatever the produce, be it fruit, nuts or vegetables etc., growing your own is something to be proud of.                                         FRED.
