Brazil Nuts are grown in the Amazon rainforests and most production is gathered from wild trees. Brazil Nuts are like nature’s own vitamin pill—beneficial to health and protection from disease.
Cashews are an unusual nut. They are actually a seed that is grown on the outside of the cashew apple. The Cashew shell contains a natural chemical acid, so Cashews are never sold in their shells. Kidney shaped with a delicate flavor and a slightly spongy-firm texture, Cashews are considered a high fat and calorie food, but when eaten in moderation, are very healthy.
Hazelnuts (Filberts) are a chocolate connoisseur’s delight and featured in pralines and truffles. Hazelnut spread (Nutella) is fast becoming a household staple and can be enjoyed in various ways.

Pine Nuts—are crunchy, delicious, small edible seeds of the pine tree. Pine kernels are a very good source of plant derived nutrients, essential minerals, vitamins and “heart friendly” monounsaturated fatty acids that help benefit in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood. A traditional food in many cultures, they are widely used for pastries, pestos and even flavor for coffee!
Pistachios—have been know to be “royalty”. Pistachios are happy and are called “the smiling nut” or “the happy nut” in some cultures. Most people love cracking and eating Pistachios, are intrigued by their color and may say it is their favorite nut…. BUT, Pistachios aren’t really nuts! Pistachios are actually “seeds” of red or yellow plum-like fruits. However, everyone calls them nuts because they look like a nut.
