The almond tree is a traditional crop, widely spread throughout Spain, with an area of approximately 600,000 hectares. The crop is especially concentrated in the areas near the Mediterranean (coastal and inland), Andalusia and the Ebro Valley. Spain is the third largest producer in the world and the leading European producer with a harvest volume of around 4.5% of total world production (50,000 tonnes of kernels), far behind California with 80% of production (900,000 tonnes).
