Nuts for Wa­ter

PS Magazine - - POP CULTURE, NEWS, AND EVENTS FROM PAST DECADES -

Nuts use a whole lot of wa­ter. It takes about a gal­lon of wa­ter to grow one al­mond, and nearly five gal­lons to grow one wal­nut. Al­mond farm­ing has al­most dou­bled in the past ten years with the av­er­age Amer­i­can now eat­ing two pounds per year. Al­monds are Cal­i­for­nia’s top agri­cul­tural ex­port. The state pro­duces 80% of the world’s al­monds and 43% of the world’s wal­nuts.
