Catalan Gourmet Marcona almonds roasted in extra virgin olive oil are large and round drupes prized for their sweet and delicate flavor. Brought to you in a glass jar, these Spanish almonds are lightly salted and fried in extra virgin olive oil to add more flavor.
Almonds are a type of drupe that originated in ancient times in the Mediterranean. The growth of these small nutty plants is almost entirely dependent on bees for pollination. Almonds also need very hot summers and cool winters to grow. They are a great source of Vitamin E, antioxidants, nutrients, magnesium, and fiber. Many countries have their own almond varieties, and Spain is no exception. One of the most notable Spanish varieties is Marcona, also known as the “Queen of Almonds,” a type of large, round, and slightly rough-surfaced variety. They usually flower at the beginning of March and mature late at the beginning of October. A wide variety of almonds and peanuts, truffle corns, pumpkin seeds, green peas, and more can be found in our selection of nuts!

The land is packed with vineyards, almond trees, and olive groves, where the olive trees grow in terraces. Thanks to the perfect climate conditions, their olive trees are aged as much as 150 years old, ensuring the use of the best olives in their products. Romanico’s as well as other Spanish brands’ products, can be found in our online Spanish grocery store!
