A shrub or small tree from the Almond (Amygdalus) subgenus of the Plum genus. Paper almonds are resistant to spring frosts. It reaches a height of 4-5 m. The surface is very bumpy. The pubescence is short and velvety. The pulp of the pericarp is very hard and dry.
Blooms in late March - early April. The flowers are white, the edges of the petals are crimson, 3 cm in diameter. The fruits are large, 4 cm long, with a paper shell. The kernels are light brown, rough, less often wrinkled or smooth, and taste sweet.
This almond variety has a very thin shell, hence its name — Paper. The biggest advantage of this variety is that the ratio of the kernel to the shell is greater than in other varieties of almonds. It enters fruiting for 4-5 years. Paper almonds are one of the sweetest and tastiest types of nuts.
