Known as the “Queen of Almonds,” the highly prized Marcona is indigenous to Spain. Requiring more time and specialized growing conditions, the trees flourish in the region of Valencia. Plumper than most varieties, this smooth, tan almond contains high amounts of essential oils.
These Marconas are blanched and peeled. They are a great option for the health conscious, as there is no oil added. In Spain, they are used in cooking and making confections like the famous D.O.P. Turron de Jijona. 1/5kg tub
