The Almond Blossom Season in Mallorca

In Mallorca you can enjoy the spring a little earlier than in Britain. Every spring, the island is awash with pink and white flowers. The first almond trees burst into flower between January and February. The almond blossom in Mallorca runs for several weeks and ends at the end of February. If the winter was warm and mild, the blossoms will peak earlier.

Almond crops were first grown in the 19th century after the island wine industry was more or less wiped out by a severe phylloxera plague that virtually killed all the grape wines. Mallorcan farmers decided to plant less vulnerable almond trees instead on their Mallorca plots for sale. Mallorca has around 200 different varieties of almonds; the sweet almond with white blossom and the bitter almond with pink blossom.

Most of the almond trees you find on the east coast, from Portocolom to Cala Millor, in the area around Llucmajor as well as on the southeast coast between Cala Figuera and Santanyi

You most certainly should never leave Mallorca without having tasted the famous and traditional “gató d’ametlles”, the moist flour-free cake usually eaten with ice-cream made from almonds.

The almond trees are harvested in the summer using traditional methods. It is common to see Mallorcan farmers beating the high branches with long wooden poles and collecting the fruits in canvases laid at their feet. 

Enjoy the spring in Mallorca and be enchanted by the flowering almond trees, green meadows and brightly colored flowers!
