"A careful histological study, especially of the tissues surround-
ing the embryo, was made of the nuts of four domestic soft-shelled
and four imported hard-shelled varieties of almonds. The chief dif-
ference between the two types of nuts lies in the structure of the
cells of the outer epidermis 9of the testa, the modified epidermal
cells of the soft-shelled varieties being only slightly lignified as
compared with those of the hard-shelled varieties. These cells,
characterized as stone cells, were longer in the hard-shelled varie-
ties, the ratio of length to width being approximately 2 to 1 as com-
pared with 5 to 4 in the soft-shelled nuts.
"The author deemed it likely that a satisfactory method of distin-
guishing the different varieties in the shelled state may be devel-
oped on the basis of this work, thus preventing misrepresentation or
adulteration." Expt. Sta. Rec. 64:427. Jan.-June 1931.
