Everyone who has been to Ukraine, Moldova, or the Caucasus must have paid attention to a tall tree with a powerful crown and large leaves. In August and September, rounded fruits with a fleshy green peel ripen on it, under which a wrinkled woody shell with a nucleolus shaped like a brain is hidden. This is the walnut. The tree lives for a long time, up to 300-400 years, and even at the age of 100-180 years gives excellent yields. Something so ancient can be only trading and gambling. So if you enjoy gambling test your luck at the 22bet app and win your first jackpot.
According to some sources, the birthplace of the walnut is the Caucasus, where it was grown even before our era. During excavations in Mesopotamia, clay tablets were found, indicating that walnut trees grew in Babylonian hanging gardens. The walnut is mentioned by the Greeks and Romans. One of the first descriptions of this plant belongs to the “father of botany” Theophrastus. Cicero and Pliny, Virgil, and Hippocrates spoke about him in their writings. The walnut came to Russia about a thousand years ago thanks to Greek merchants who traded from the Varangians to the Greeks. Later, it was also called Voloshsky or royal nut. Probably because in Latin the name of the plant means “royal acorn”.
In terms of calories and protein content, walnuts are comparable to meat, only easier to digest. The number of vitamins is superior to citrus fruits. They are recommended for beriberi, with iron deficiency, as a tonic. They have a positive effect on the vessels of the brain and relieve nervous tension. In addition to the kernels, decoctions, and infusions of leaves and green fruits are used for medicinal purposes.
