Legumes: pods with seeds that open on their own when they are ready to be harvested. Example: peanuts.
Seeds: seeds are the small parts of a plant enclosed in the seed coat or the flesh of the fruit. Like in an apricot, a seed is the reproductive part of the fruit, while botanical nuts are fruits themselves. Examples: almonds, cashews and pecans.
