Popular nut, primarily grown in California. One of the first blooming fruit or nut trees and therefore susceptible to late frosts. Heavy yielding trees that grow best on well-drained, fertile soil. Low water requirement. Susceptible to brown rot, shot hole fungus, and navel orange worm. Almonds store extremely well. The trees are 1 year old and can be expected to fruit in their 4th year. Semi-dwarf tree on Viking rootstock, grows to 15'-20' without pruning. Viking is a vigorous, precocious tree, with nematode resistance similar to Nemaguard, productive, increases fruit size, shows tolerance of wet soil conditions.

Almonds are subject to desiccation, especially the buds, and should be protected from the wind and drying out. Use diluted white water-based latex paint and paint the tree to protect it from heat and sun damage.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
