Pits Nuts Stones

The tree is full of fruits. How gorgeous they appear. Mystery fruit until I took a challenge to learn. The fruit is that of a walnut tucked deeply inside just like a peach stone inside a peach. But it's not a cling-free stone variety. Could there be such a variation in walnuts?
How strange that we have so many labels for what's at the centre of a fruit; seeds, pits, nuts, even stones.

I've not heard of free-stone walnuts, but we don't have many walnut trees around here, so I'm not an expert. Thanks for taking up the challenge of learning what fruit this is.
