Almond

This sweet flavoursome soft shelled almond is self-fertile, producing a tree about 3m high. A very attractive tree covered in single white flowers just as the leaves emerge in spring. It likes it hot in summer, but well drained soil and enough watering during the summer growth. It needs some winter chill to pollinate but will not tolerate frost. Expect fruiting to start after 3-5 years after which it bears heavily.

Please note that almonds are susceptible to transplant shock. New leaf may not appear as late as summer or even Autumn following spring planting. Ensure the tree doesnt dry out during transplanting, nor get over-watered or planted in ground susceptible to water logging.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
