National Walnut Day
Each year May 17th recognizes the holiday squirrels go a little nutty over, National Walnut Day.
Rounded, single-seeded stone fruits of the walnut tree, walnuts are a high-density source of nutrients, particularly proteins and essential fatty acids. Like other tree nuts, walnuts must be processed and stored properly.
Grown for their seeds, the Persian or English Walnut and the Black Walnut are the two most common major species of walnuts.
