Ahh, OK, I get it now. Are peanuts legumes? I know they're not really nuts and I thought they're in the bean family.
Peanuts are legumes. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts and Brazil nuts are seeds. Hazelnuts, acorns and pecans are nuts.

For Foggie :) Legumes are agricultural plants that contain nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Legumes, such as alfafa and beans, are frequently called vegetables, but true vegetables lack the bacteria characteristic of legumes. Other legumes include peas, lentils, soybeans, peas, carob and mesquite. https://...
