These green-lings don't linger for long!

Above picture is of a branch of green almonds at whitmore ranch. These baby almonds typically hang around for only about 6-8 weeks starting now. Apparently, many upscale gourmet chefs use green almonds as garnishing on their savory dishes. Here's the lowdown on this young nut.

Look: Fuzzy soft hull with gelatinous textured nut inside (think young coconut pulp).

Flavor: Raw, fruity and a little wheatgrassy'ish.

Taste: Sweet, tangy(?) with nice crunch.

Nutrition: Same as mature almonds.
