          1. Almond fruit is that oval shaped fruit that we used to eat back then .It falls off from the tree once it's ripe. It comes in different colours (red, yellow, cream)with very tasty outer flesh. The peak of it is that after eating the fleshy part, we can break the hard inner part to release the seed which is a sweet but inside. The but is always brown on the outside & White within.
