Almonds have been recently shown by researchers to have many health benefits, because of the high anti-oxidant content that comes from the high concentrations of unsaturated fatty acids that are contained in the almond oil. Eating the almond kernels have been suggested to prevent many kinds of cancer and to lower blood pressure. Almond trees have been historically planted by the ancient civilizations who lived in the Mediterranean areas. The almond tree is very cold hardy and can be successfully grown in most of the U S. The fruit that is formed, after the flowering has finished, looks very much like a small peach, but the nut is actually formed on the inside looking much like a peach-pit. The almond trees flower very early in the spring, and the fruit matures during the summer, a characteristic that makes almonds excellent to supply fresh crops to grocery stores, so the nuts will be in stock to sell by Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday festivities.
