Do almonds tend to contain more pesticides than any other type of nut?

    To indirectly address your question: almonds and most other tree nuts grow inside of a fruit, the exception perhaps being cashews. So, if pesticides are sprayed on the fruits, it is less likely to reach the part of the plant that you arae going to eat–the seed– than some other crops. For example with apples, the pesticides are sprayed right onto the fruit skin, which most people eat, but again, nuts have a protective barrier between the part people eat and the part that has direct exposure to the pesticides.
