One of the first cultivated trees in the world is the Asian almond tree. According to botanists, the almond that is currently grown is a natural hybrid of three extinct, wild species that were found in the sun-baked mountains of Central Asia. The almond tree blooms with white and pink flowers in the start of spring before any trees have leaves. Almonds are distinguished by a significant number of essential fatty acids, which are indispensable in a person’s daily diet. Almonds now primarily come from China, Spain, and the US.
