Stage 1 (April 1-19 approx.): The almond nutlet is in a gelatinous state and has a texture similar to a grape. The outside hull is covered in a peach-like fuzz. At this stage, many prefer green almonds when eaten whole.

Stage 2 (April 19-May 12 approx.): The nut is half developed and partially in its gel state. Green almonds will now need to be cut open with a paring knife to slit open the fuzzy outer hull.

Stage 3 (May 17-June 1 approx.): Once the fuzzy hull has been removed, it will reveal an ivory-colored solid, pliable, tender nutlet. Green almonds will have a smooth, creamy texture and slightly nutty flavor. It is excellent on salads.

Green Almonds are a delicious delicacy popular in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Chefs around the world use them as both an ingredient and a garnish. Depending on the almond's stage of growth, they can have a soft, gelatinous consistency or a firmer feel.

Green Almonds are available for a short period of time (typically about 1 1/2 to 2 months) from approximately April to the middle of May. The first few weeks cover the early stage (gelatinous), while the later weeks provide the late stage (firm).

As Mother Nature has her own timeline, we cannot pinpoint the exact date when they will change from early stage to late, and there may be some mixture of products in the middle couple of weeks. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at
