Flower type and reproduction
The flowers of the Almond tree are hermaphrodites and monoecioussince they have androceous and gynecological in the same flower and both sexes coincide in the same individual.
Its inflorescence is racemose and grape-shaped, that is, the pedicellates are arranged along an axis. They are flowers that present homologous pieces at the same level of the floral axis, with two planes of symmetry and with well differentiated calyx and corolla, for which they are actinomorphic and heteroclitic cyclic flowers.
They have a fairly well developed perianth composed of a calyx and corolla. The chalice is made up of five red sepals welded together; the corolla, which is dialyzed, has five free petals equal to each other, symmetrically arranged in a very regular way, white or pale pink in color and welded only at the base.
Androceusa is made up of all the male organs of the flower called stamens. These are formed by a filament and an anther which is formed by two teak. In each teak, there are two pollen bags in the place where the pollen grains are located.
