Although it did not receive status as one of the seven agricultural species described in the Torah, the almond tree still holds vaunted status for its beauty and its blossoms herald the return of spring in the land of Israel.

Almond trees grow widely across Israel, from the Center to the North, both in large commercial groves and scattered throughout the country’s many hills and valleys.
