Puyricard Almonds Prepare to Bloom

With a life expectancy of up to 100 years, the Puyricard almond, a symbol of love and virginity, is characterized by its exceptional and early flowering. Its white-pink blooms appear at the end of winter, between late February and early March, with the first sunny days of spring, before giving way in June to the harvesting of fresh almonds. Resistant to cold but vulnerable to frost, this fruit tree particularly likes the sun and is characterized by an incredible resistance to cold and drought.

Rich in carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins and nutrients, the nut from the Puyricard almond tree, famous for its unique sweet scent reminiscent of childhood, has many virtues. Providing proven and guaranteed health and beauty benefits, it is widely used in cooking for its antioxidant, nourishing and energizing properties, but with a minimum of calories. It is also very popular in cosmetics, where it works wonders. The 100% natural oil softens the skin, tones, and helps revitalize dry and damaged hair by nourishing in depth.
