Soon the countryside of Mallorca will be covered with white and rose colours. It’s the blooming almond trees, which convert rural fields in a beautiful spectacle announcing thus the arrival of spring.
The Majorcan almond (“ametlla” in Majorcan) is a very popular nut in the island’s gastronomy but also used in cosmetics for creating perfumes, soaps and lotions.
The cultivation of almonds is dating back to the Roman times. It used to play and still plays an important role in the economy of this Mediterranean region. Nowadays, it is recognised by European Union and listed within the products with protected geographical indication. This undoubtedly guaranties its excellent quality.
