hi, we have a almond tree... when the right time to pick them..?



The velvety husks will open up and let the nuts out naturally, when they are ready. Commercially, they just let them fall onto a tarp, maybe giving the tree a shake to encourage them. If it's still a small tree, Afarrell, it may be practical to pick the stubborn ones, as long as the husk's been open at least a day, though those are frequently runty or bitter.
