This was on a tree and the fruit (unripe) looked like an almond.
Many thanks.

I generally agree with my colleagues, but next time post also the image of the leaves to be 100% sure. There are some varieties of other stone fruit trees which can have that colour. The leaves of peaches is quite unique. Nevertheless, I vote for Prunus persica for your photo
