Pizzuta D’Avola Almonds Mitica®
Italy’s most prestigious heirloom variety of almond is grown in southeastern Sicily. Pizzuta refers to the physical shape of the almond, which is pointy and flat. Exceptionally rich in essential oils, the almond is fruity, almost cherry-like, with just a hint of bitterness in the finish. It is the pure flavor that almond extract tries to reproduce. Exceptionally fruity with a flavor like marzipan, limited production Pizzuta di Avola almonds are in a category all their own.
