Green Almonds
Green Almonds

These funky and adorably fuzzy oblong orbs hold a special surprise inside: a jelly-like, skinless, unripened almond! Although some prefer to peel away the soft green shell, you can eat green almonds whole — fuzz and all (like a peach).

When green almonds are left to develop on the branch, their telltale peach fuzz recedes, their soft shells harden, and their bright green colour fades to brown. Inside the hardened shell, you’ll find the crunchy brown almond you’re used to seeing in snack mixes and on charcuterie boards!

These ephemeral beauties have a fresh, crispy texture, and tart, earthy taste with just a hint of almond that makes them an excellent addition to salads, pesto, desserts, and more. Plus, they’re high in antioxidants, protein, fiber, and are one of the best sources of vitamin E around.

Green almonds are only in season for a few weeks in the spring, so don’t blink or you’ll miss ‘em!
