The vast majority of the world’s almonds are grown and harvested in the United States. In the 2019/2020 crop year the United States produced over a million metric tons of almonds. The second leading producer of almonds was the European Union in that year, with 137.2 thousand metric tons of almonds. 

Almond production 

Almonds require full sun, a warm climate, and a large amount of water in order to thrive and produce nuts. Because they are especially vulnerable to cold weather, places like California are ideal for cultivating almonds. Over the last several years, almond production has increased worldwide, from 1.03 million metric tons in 2014/2015 to 1.35 million metric tons in 2018/2019.
