Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Almond Day

The USA marks February 16th as National Almond Day in recognition of the healthy nut!

  • Apples, strawberries, plums and almonds are all types of rose.
  • Almonds are not actually nuts - they are the seeds of a drupe, which is a type of fruit that has a hard outer layer surrounding the seed.

  • Almonds are native to the Middle East and have been cultivated for thousands of years. They are now widely grown in many other parts of the world, including California, which is the largest producer of almonds in the world.

  • Almonds are a rich source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making them a nutritious addition to a healthy diet.

  • Almonds have a mild, nutty flavor and are used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes, including desserts, baked goods, and salads.

  • Almond oil, which is extracted from almonds, is used in cooking and cosmetics, and is known for its moisturizing properties.

  • Almond milk, a popular alternative to dairy milk, is made by blending almonds with water and is a good option for those who are lactose intolerant or vegan.

  • Almond trees require a lot of water to grow and thrive, and it takes approximately one gallon of water to produce a single almond. This has led to concerns about the environmental impact of almond farming, especially in regions where water is scarce.
