For the first time since I planted for their blossom three years ago , my almond trees are producing almonds. Much excitement and off I go to google what you do with a real life on-the-tree almond. Turns out there are two types- the sweet almond which is delicious and benign and the bitter almond which is evil and has cyanide in and will kill you. I have a vague memory that the nursery man said they were sweet almond but I would like to check and I can't find anywhere a guide to telling them apart. Any thoughts??
It was his closing down sale after nasty divorce so no idea where he is now. I am sure you are right, and I have some vague memory of them being the non evil kind but I just thought checking would be good! I don't actually like almonds all that much ( I just got carried away with the excitement that they were home grown ) so it seemed a gamble for something I am a bit meh about.
