Would "alună" not be a suitable synonym for "peanut" here, too?

"alună" is a walnut, therefore no...

...A walnut? I always thought walnut is "nucă", and hazelnut, at best, "alună de pădure". But I suppose calling peanuts "alune" might be more of a colloquialism.

Oops, yes aluna would be hazelnut.. peanuts are not hazelnuts... I men't to say hazelnuts. Sorry for the confusion :-)

Also called a "filbert", but maybe it is really a different species in Europe than in America

Marked wrong but it appears to match the correct answer

I must tap harder for my spaces because the words are not being separated which gives me a wrong answer.
