Almonds So Good & So Gone!
Jul 02, 2014
I've been talking to almonds growers and everyone is feeling it. California organic almonds are scarce, next harvest is not until August/September and this year's drought the most devastating to CA almond growers ever. Extreme drought means no water and no water for these tree nuts means trees are dying. Farmers can and will be wiped out...just like that. It's a harsh story both locally and globally (CA supplies 82% of the world's almonds). For more on the topic, check out Peter Fimrite's report here on SFGate.com.
