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).
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!
