Almonds are not nuts

An almond is the seed of an almond tree. The tree bears fruits with a stone-like seed in the middle (the almond). These fruits are called Drupes. Walnut and coconut trees are drupes. Some flowering plants that produce drupes are coffee, jujube, mango, olive, most palms (including date, coconut and oil palms), pistachio, white sapote, and all members of the genus Prunus, including the almond ,apricot, cherry, damson, nectarine, peach, and plum.
