Aaron’s rod that budded (Numbers 17:2, 3) was an almond rod. Also see Jeremiah 1:11.

The blossoms of the almond are mentioned Exodus 25:33; Exodus 37:19, etc. “Cups made like almond-blossoms in one branch, a knop (i.e. knob) and a flower,” is the description given of parts of the sacred candlesticks called the Temple Menorah.
