Factsheet N06: Almonds


The almond (Prunus dulcis – formerly P.amygdalus, P.communis, Amygdalus communis) has been cultivated for its edible seed since ancient times. From its centre of origin in Central Asia, it was disseminated to all ancient civilisations in Asia (2000 BC), Europe (350 BC) and North Africa (700 AD). Almonds were introduced into California in the Spanish Mission period, but significant plantings made there only after the Gold rush.
