Marcona almonds – the so-called “Queen of Almonds” – are a highly sought-after type of Spanish almond, characterized by a texture more similar to that of a macadamia nut and rounder than the more common California almond variety. It is no wonder Marcona almonds have conquered the palates of gourmands around the world: from a nutritional point of view there is no difference compared to common almonds, however, their flavor and texture are a completely different story.

Marcona almonds are characterized by a sweet and buttery taste with a crunchy texture. Moist in the mouth and offering a very delicate center, Marcona has an aroma and flavor reminiscent of freshly baked pastries. Typically, the productivity of an almond plant increases with age, until reaching its maximum at around eighteen years: at this point the almond tree is able to produce around 75 to 90 quintals of almonds with husks and shells per year. For the Marcona variety, however, the quantities are considerably lower.

The nuts are harvested primarily in the summer months, when the seed reaches a solid state. For the most part Mediterranean almond growing consists of small family-run almond groves – just like the Almondeli one – and, unlike the Californian variety the nuts are still harvested by hand.

Almondeli owns numerous almond groves that extend over 200 hectares of land and where only the Marcona and Valencia varieties are grown. Marcona trees grow only along the Mediterranean coast of Spain, in a poor and arid terrain. Toasted and slightly salted, Marcona almonds are considered the “Queens of the Spanish Aperitif”, the perfect product for a gourmet break: excellent on their own or paired with a good platter of quality Iberian cheeses and cold cuts. The product that best represents the Iberian saying “Para Picar y Para Compartir” (meaning to share)!
