Almonds are known as nuts but are botanically a fruit, the ancestor of fruits that have large stones for seeds, such as nectarines, peaches, plums and apricots.The Almond has a tough greenish-gray hull that looks like a small, oval peach, when mature, this hull splits open, revealing the Almond shell which encases the nut.There are two types of Almonds: sweet and bitter.The sweet Almond has a delicate and slightly sweet flavor and is used in desserts and confectionery items.
