The province of Alicante is already seeing the first pink and white blossom of the almond trees on their farmland. The areas of Torrellano, in Elche, Hondón de las Nieves and Hondón de los Frailes, in the Medio Vinalopó, the districts of Marina Alta and Vega Baja are some of the points of the province in which you can already enjoy a beautiful landscape.
This flowering is earlier than usual in the region. It is common for the first petals and the first almond buds to begin appearing at the beginning of February.
The relatively high temperatures in recent weeks in the region, where in some points, such as Elche, have reached between 18 and 20 degrees! We’ve seen people sun bathing on the coast. However, the local farmers are a little worried that some almonds groves in the mountains may be exposed to possible frosts as the local temperature and inclement weather can be cold in the evenings and early mornings in January and Feburary. Lately the Hondon Valley is feeling 3-5 degrees first thing BRrrrrrr! But all is well by mid morning and a lunch al-fresco is a still a pleasant experience.
