New. Different. Undiscovered.
Originally found only in Spain, Marcona almonds have been enjoying a steady rise in popularity in the United States. They receive prominent display at gourmet markets, appear on upscale restaurant menus and are capturing the attention of food writers.
The Marcona variety of almond offers a very different experience from a regular almond. Marcona almonds are shorter, rounder, sweeter and softer in texture than other varieties. They possess a delicate, buttery flavor that is due to their high oil and moisture content.
