Green almonds have a distinct but subtle flavor that is hard to pin down, but has been variously described as delicate, grassy, fruity, and even “green.”
Green almonds are available for an 8 week period in the early growing season from April to mid-June. The developing almonds are considered ‘ripe’ for harvest as green almonds.
At this stage, the almonds resemble a tiny, immature version of their cousins the peach or apricot, with a soft green fuzzy hull surrounding the nascent nut.
