Look like unripe small green pointy peaches- inside the fuzzy "peach" is a stone and inside the stone is the "almond" kernel. Almonds are not really a nut- they are a seed. You can live off almonds indefinitely. Almonds are highly nutritious, rich in almost all the elements needed by body. Almonds are one of the only alkaline nuts. They inhibit tumor cell growth, good source of vit E and magnesium, fiber, calcium, iron. The outer fleshy part is edible also- the best time is when the fruit is still young and the insides haven’t hardened yet.
