The things you learn: Almonds are in "Prunus"

OK, so I knew that cherries are related to plums, since they’re both in genus Prunus. What I didn’t know is that almonds are, too—and that they’re even more closely related to peaches, both being in the subgenus amygdalus!

Almonds, peaches—what is difference?

Huh. Whodathunkit.
