The fruit of the almond is a drupe, consisting of an outer hull and a hard shell with the seed(nut). Inside the hull is a reticulated, hard, woody shell (like the outside of a peach pit) called the endocarp. When we cut a small section of the shell and place it under the foldscope we see the fiber like structures of the shell.
