walnut

The ridged edible seed of a deciduous tree of the genus Juglans. Walnuts are a source of dietary fat; they reduce the risk of ischaemic heart disease by lowering cholesterol and favourably modifying the lipoprotein profile. Other nuts (e.g., almonds, hazelnuts) are thought to have similar effects.
