  • Prunus amygdalus is commonly known as the Almond Tree and is a native tree of the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent.
  • The almond tree was spread by humans in ancient times to southern Europe, North Africa and more recently in modern times to California.
  • The almond tree is a deciduous tree and has a life span that is relatively short and rarely exceeds 25 years.
  • Can reach heights of up to  9-10 metres
  • The average harvest is approximately 6-8kg of almonds per tree.
  • A well-known archaeological example of the almond is the fruit found in Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt, King Tut took several handfuls of almonds to his grave in 1352 B.C., to nourish him on his journey into the afterlife.
  • The word "almond" comes from Old French almande or alemande, Late Latin amandula, which is derived through the Greek word amygdala.
Cultural History
  • It’s said Moses crafted pure gold lamps in the shape of almonds, Persian rug makers wove their image into rugs and Van Gogh devoted many paintings to their likeness. Since at least biblical times, it’s believed the almond has been revered in art, music and literature as emblems of beauty, hope and rebirth.
  • The Romans showered newlyweds with almonds as a fertility charm. Today, Southern Europeans and North Americans give guests at weddings a bag of sugared almonds, representing children, happiness, romance, good health and fortune.
