Nuts

 

Are mentioned among the good things of the things which the sons of Israel were to take as a present to Joseph in Egypt. (Genesis 43:11) There can scarcely be a doubt that the Hebrew word, here denotes the fruit of the pistachio tree (Pistacia vera), for Syria and Palestine have been long famous, and you can find more about that here on st-takla.org on other commentaries and dictionary entries. In (Song of Solomon 6:11) a different Hebrew word is translated "nuts." In all probability it here refers to the walnut tree. According to Josephus the walnut tree was formerly common and grew most luxuriantly around the Lake of Gennesareth.
