    Default Kids pounding for nuts driving me nuts..

    The neighbors have some big tree that is producing thousands of reddish drupes and the kids spend
    hours bashing them open with rocks all day. Me esposa said the nuts are almendra but I must
    be getting the spelling wrong bc nothing like on google.. a bit bigger than apricot pits.. what are they?

    dude, use word reference. it's not the first time you ask about something claiming that nothing comes up when you search online.

    Almond tree fruit



    Getting the nut (seed) from the almond fruit is a time consuming PITA and 2 hours of breaking the outer fruit and inner shell to retrieve the nut will only yield a small bowl. Thank goodness commercial growers have machines for that.

    When my daughter started to walk the first thing she always did was looking for almendra. she loved them!
    Her mom didn't like it because apparently the skin makes the teeth yellow.

    They are kind of almonds as well. Delicious and very tasty. The outer skin, pulp, when ripe and dark pink, can be chewed for the juice. Should not be swallowed. I think here they do not know much about how to make use of fruits and vegetables. They do not even know to cook the drum stucks. Moringa vegetable.

    Yeah we used to get "unshelled" almonds when I was a kid and the husk wasn't thick at all. I have to shew the kids away at least once a day once they start pounding, and they leave a huge mess.
