Prunus Dulcis is the operative term for the sweet almond. The cultivated almond traces its origins to the deserts and lower mountain slopes of central and southwest Asia. By 4,000 B.C., almonds were in use in nearly every ancient civilization. That was also about the time that humans learned to cultivate the trees. Although primarily a Californian product today, the sweet seed is also famous to the Mediterranean countries of Europe. Almonds are predominantly being cultivated and harvested in groves, like most commercial edible nuts. Almonds have multiple applications mainly in the nutrition industry for snacks, bakery and confectionary purposes. Promotion of health benefits of nuts in general and almonds in particular, make them more popular every year. This trend leads to remarkeble growth of almond consumption worldwide.
