AVOLA Almonds

Montebianco

The Avola almond plant: Prunus Amygdalus

The almond plant is native to Asian areas and has been cultivated for more than 4000 years. It was brought to Sicily by the Phoenicians and the Greeks.
Few know that there are more than 700 varieties of almonds in the world, and 120 just in Italy! There are only three cultivars named the Avola Almond:
Pizzuta (in Sicilian mennula pizzuta)
Fascionello
Corrente d’Avola or Romana

Originally from the Avola area, these are the most valuable cultivars on international markets.
They flower between January and mid-March in marine areas and low hills, where late frosts are rare.
For these reasons, production is limited to the provinces of Siracusa and Ragusa, which are considered Italy’s sunniest.
The plant can reach eight and ten metres in height.
The natural habitat for the best variety is the Val di Noto.
The harvest takes place during August and September.

Almonds fights “bad” cholesterol, hypertension, obesity... thanks to the fact that they are particularly rich in vegetable fats, antioxidants and fibre. They can prevent cardiovascular problems!
They also help those who are lactose intolerant and coeliacs. Naturally glutenfree.
Almonds promote physical activity because of their high content of phosphorus, magnesium and especially
