California Almonds

Almonds are believed to have originated in China and Central Asia centuries ago. In the mid-1700s, the almond tree was brought to California by the Franciscan Padres as a blessing to their mission.  Today, California almonds are processed and manufactured to meet the world wide demand and sophisticated global markets.
