Fruit and Nut Trees


A fruit or nut tree is a tree which bears food that is consumed or used by humans and some animals. All trees that are flowering plants produce fruit, which are the ripened ovaries of flowers containing one or more seeds. In horticultural usage, the term 'fruit tree' is limited to those that provide fruit for human food. A nut is actually a fruit composed of a hard shell and a seed, which is generally edible.
