As in all Mediterranean countries, the ancient cultivation of almonds has remained traditional in the Spanish archipelago of the Balearic Islands. The almonds are generally gathered by shaking the tree branches over sheets spread out beneath. The low productivity of each almond tree (4.4 to 11 lbs, or 2 to 5 kg, of almonds per tree) is compensated for by the large area planted with trees; however, that area has diminished considerably because old trees have rarely been replaced. Spain nevertheless remains the second-greatest almond producer in the world (after the United States), accounting for about 300,000 tons per year, nearly 80% of which are consumed by European countries in various forms: in confectionery and pastry (dried sweet almonds), as an aromatic agent (essence of bitter almond), or in cosmetics (sweet almond oil).
