Origin: Spain
Marcona almonds are a special product of Spain, akin to San Marzano tomatoes from Italy or caviar from Russia. They've been imported to the US for years, but have only recently gained a wider audience thanks to a growing interest in Spanish cuisine among chefs, food writers, and other foodies.

These almonds are more rounded and plump than the California varieties we're used to. They also seem to have a softer and somewhat "wet" texture, similar to macadamia nuts. The marcona almonds we've tried have a sweeter, more delicate taste closer to the flavor we associate with almond extract.
