What is the Tropical Almond?

The tropical almond, Terminalia catappa, is a large tropical tree naturalised in Ghana and West Africa.
It is a neglected, edible nut species that grows in abundance in West Africa's tropical coastal regions without the need for irrigation water. Completely under-utilised to this day, it merely serves ornamental purposes.
Though botanically unrelated to the conventional almond, Prunus dulcis, it has a nutritional profile that is almost identical to it.
The tropical almond, therefore, provides a great alternative to the conventional almond both nutritionally and in taste.
