Our Monterey SSR 20/22 are natural, whole almonds produced using are grown by conventional farming methods. We at Olamnuts offer our almonds in pasteurized form.
Our customers can purchase bulk Almonds and wholesale Almonds. For more information on our warehouses please click here.
The digits 20/22 signify that customers who purchase this variety of almonds can expect around 20 to 22 kernels in one ounce of serving. A point our customers need to note is if the digits are smaller, the size of almonds is bigger and vice versa.
The letters SSR, which expand to “Select Sheller Run”, is the USDA grade descriptor signifying that our customers are purchasing a relatively mid-quality grade nut, making this product ideal where visual appearance does not play a significant role in the final product. The grading also allows for a slightly higher tolerance of defects that may occur in a load of almonds.
These grading tolerances are mentioned below:
||Chip & Scratch
||Particles & Dust
||Split & Broken
Montereys are a Carmel variety, which are long, narrow, large kernels with wrinkled surfaces and light coloring. Carmel Type varieties are very versatile and are used for roasting, salting and/or flavoring. Because their looks are similar to their Nonpareil cousins, they are very popular.
The Montereys have a slightly wrinkled skin with small ridges that allow salt or seasonings to adhere to the surface better. These almonds have a rich, meaty taste and are great for snacking as well as home baking recipes and roasting! They have a slightly Darker and more wrinkled skin than the lighter smooth skin Nonpareil Variety.
