The almond trees didn't grow well along the coast, but by the 1800s California farmers had found a home for almonds further from the ocean, where it was dryer. Today most US almonds come from California, and California also ships lots of almonds to India and China, where almonds have become very popular.
Also question is, where are almonds produced?
Eat an almond anywhere in the world and chances are that it was grown in the Golden State. California produces 82% of the globe's almonds, harvesting about 800,000 acres of the tree nut across a 400-mile stretch from northern Tehama County to southern Kern County.
