The fruit of the almond is not a true nut, but a drupe, which posesses outer hull and a hard shell with the seed ("nut") inside. The almond farmer harvests in the fall when the drupe splits open and gets ready to fall off. He shakes the drupes out of the tree, and may or may not shell it to extract the almond center. We sell only top -tasting, fresh bulk almonds with wonderful bulk prices and zilch for sales tax! Almonds are commonly sold either unshelled (shells are still intact) or shelled (after shells are removed). Blanched almonds are shelled almonds that have been treated with hot water to soften the seed coat, which is then removed to reveal the white nut. Slivered almonds have been cut up into little sticks. Almond size is communicated by the number of whole almonds that it takes to make up one ounce, so the bigger the almonds, the smaller the number.
