The Almond. The village of Wallajah was there until 1948; today, it exists right across the creek. It seems that almonds come from a uniform source from an evolutionary point of view. It is an ancient tree with a good tradition of nature's failures and triumphs that has learned a few things. As a rule, almond blossoms bring about 10% fruit. However, the plant cannot grow every flower into fruit, so it only listens to the strong.
