The Lowdown

  • Season
  • Color
  • Select
    Look for solid white texture with no discoloration.
  • Store
    Packaged almonds can be stored in unopened packages in a cool, dark place for up to one year. But almonds tend to become rancid when aged. Almonds can be stored in the refrigerator to make them last longer.
