The Almond tree is native to North Africa, West Asia and the Mediterranean but now is grown primarily in California. Almonds are known as nuts but are botanically a fruit, the ancestor of fruits that have large stones for seeds, such as nectarines, peaches, plums and apricots. The Almond has a tough greenish-gray hull that looks like a small, oval peach, when mature, this hull splits open, revealing the Almond shell, which encases the nut. These Almonds are slivered from blanched.
