The almond (Prunus Dulcis) is native to countries in Western Asia. They have thrived in California since the 1800s due to the state’s warm climate. Since then, the almond industry has had a steady increase in production. There are an estimated 1,330,000 acres dedicated to growing almonds in California.
Almonds are technically not a nut. It is a seed found in the almond fruit which is a drupe. Farmers can indicate when almonds can be harvested by the season (usually August-September) or by appearance. When the almond shell has been exposed, this signals that they are ready to be harvested, processed, and packaged.
