Heartnuts are a cultivar of the Japanese walnut. They open into two flat heart-shaped halves, like a locket.

Nuts are high on the diet culture list of good-for-you foods, and heartnuts have been shown to be a particularly healthy nut â?” high in fiber, antioxidants, and protein. The taste is sweet, mild and pleasing. A wonderful nut for cooking and baking, it is especially flavorful toasted.

The Heartnut's beautiful shells are great for crafting. Their heart shape, sturdy structure, and texture work very well in wreaths and decorations.

Heartnuts are delicious toasted. They can be substituted in any recipe that uses walnuts. Heartnuts make a wonderful pesto. They are delicious in cookies and baked goods. The mild, sweet flavor is excellent with cheeses such as feta.
