The almond tree is closely related to the plum and peach trees. The almond is the stone of a fruit and therefore does not belong to nutty fruits. Almonds are harvested at the end of summer (in August). This is done by shaking the tree by means of a special machine and catching the almonds at the same time. They are gathered and transported to a factory. 

The state of California in the USA is the biggest producer of almonds, growing approximately 80% of the world’s supply.

Almonds grow in different varieties and sizes as shown clearly in ‘Guide to California Almonds’ from the almond board of California. The three major (90%) classifications fall under Nonpareil, California and Mission.

The most beautiful (nothing prettier than the almond blossom) but also critical period (because of the frost risk) is between mid-February and mid-March when the almond trees bloom.
The harvest takes place once a year from August through October (depending on the variety) after which the almonds are laid out to dry for 7 to 10 days.

A handful of almonds provides you with 6 grams of plant protein, 4 grams of fiber, 13 grams of unsaturated fat (only 1 gram of saturated fat), magnesium, antioxidant, vitamin E.

A happy & healthy addition to your product.
