Almonds then bloom into beautiful light pink blooms. Almonds need bees in order for cross-pollination to occur.

Pollination is the vital process in flowering plant reproduction involving the transfer of pollen grains from the anther (or male part) to the stigma (or female part) of the same, or another plant of the same species. The fertilised egg cells grow into seeds which are then spread in the many fruits and vegetables that we all love to eat like ALMONDS

From September to December, the crop matures, allowing the almond hulls to mature and harden.  Afterwards, around early January, the almond hull begins to split, and crack open. The split in the hull widens and then they are ready for harvest! In Australia, harvest takes place from February to April, at this time, there is an adequate moisture level for the nut. Harvesting can be done mechanically, this requires shakers which are used to vibrate the trunk. The shaking movement allows the fruit to fall, these are then picked up for storage and processing.

Australian almonds are mainly grown in Sunraysia (VIC), Riverland (SA), Riverina (NSW), and Adelaide Plains (SA).
