Almonds Independence Extra 18/20

From California with USA origin
Availability: In Stock

Almonds Independence Extra is one of the newest almond varieties developed and in a short time has become the fourth largest variety. Olam will harvest over 157 million pounds of the variety in the year 2020. The popularity of the variety is due to its unique self-pollinizing ability, which means the Independence variety of almonds does not require the assistance of bees to grow.

We at Olamnuts offer our almonds in pasteurized form.

Our customers can purchase bulk Almonds and wholesale Almonds.

These almonds grow very large in size with some of them ballooning to 16/18 count per ounce. These almonds are also available in the 25/27 size as well. However, these particular almonds are sized 18/20, meaning customers can expect 18 to 20 Independence Extra kernels in one ounce of serving.

They have a shape very similar to a Nonpareil making them an excellent choice for using in trail mixes, roasting, salting, and more. The Almonds Independence Extra is a welcome versatile addition to the almond family. 

Extra is the USDA grade descriptor that signifies that our customers are purchasing a superior product that is visually appealing with minimal chips, scratches, foreign material, or other defects or damage. The grading also allows for slightly higher tolerance of defects that may occur in a load of almonds. 

These grading tolerances are mentioned below:



Chip & Scratch

Foreign Material

Particles & Dust

Split & Broken

Other Defects

Serious Damage
