Do you know?

They all grow on trees. Lydia, still no success growing money on trees? Keeping it a family secret????? Denise

They are all tree nuts.

Obviously! Silly me, I didn't think of it. Interesting how otherwise they are so different in their manner of growth, family, ease/difficulty of gathering. So many differences...

ok, but how do the others grow?? :-D
I think peanuts grow on bushes but what about pecans and filberts etc?

They grow on trees! Fun one, Lydia!

Ha ha! They all grow on trees. I have all of them on hand, at all times. We even have an almond tree in our backyard.

I'm not sure because I never thought of peanuts as growing on trees?

Trees! Peanuts are a legume and grow in the ground. Hence the name some give them--ground nuts.

And, peanuts aren't on the list in the question anyway--
And cashews could be the subject of another quiz... http://www.theperfectpantry.com/2009/10/cashews-recipe-muhammara.html

They can all be used in pesto!

They are all seeds!

All of those nuts make amazing Fresh Tomato Pesto.
