Almond production worldwide 2017/2018, by country The vast majority of the world’s almonds are grown and harvested in the United States. In the 2017/2018 crop year the United States produced over a million metric tons of almonds. The second leading producer of almonds was the European Union in that year, with 109.5 thousand metric tons of almonds.

Almond production

Almonds require full sun, a warm climate, and a large amount of water in order to thrive and produce nuts. Because they are especially vulnerable to cold weather, places like California are ideal for cultivating almonds. Over the last several years, almond production has increased worldwide, from 1.03 million metric tons in 2014/2015 to 1.28 million metric tons in 2017/2018.

Almond consumption and products

Almonds are a very versatile nut; they can be consumed raw or roasted, they can be ground into almond butter or used to produce almond milk. Among the different varieties of tree nuts, almonds are the second most consumed worldwide, behind peanuts. In 2018, the volume of almonds consumed worldwide amounted to 1.19 million metric tons.
