Interesting Facts about Almonds:
Almonds are grown across the world with America being the greatest producer, followed by Australia and Spain. The almond tree actually originated in the middle east and soon spread as far as North Africa and India. The almond tree produces a fruit that contains the drupe, which is what we know of as the almond. A drupe may appear to look like a nut but it is not, therefore in botanical terms, almonds aren’t a true nut.
