The Almond tree
Almonds have been cultivated in Spain for over 2,000 years. They were probably brought here by the Phoenicians and later spread by the Romans, as the remains of boats found on the seabed show that both traded in them. Initially they were grown along the coast and this is still the main area of cultivation, but they have also been introduced inland, even in the north of the country where the climate is not ideal for them.
