Nut trees tend to be undervalued as specimens for ornamental or even edible use, and yet the benefit that can be derived from growing a variety of nut trees cannot be overlooked. Nut trees lend themselves well to being Espaliered and will produce a fantastic crop of delicious and highly nutritious edibles. They bring early spring blossom magic and can be pruned to the desired size. And nuts are so versatile: they can be roasted and salted as snacks, choped and mixed into a million different baked goods, caramelised, candied, mixed with seeds and grains to make snack bars, ground to make nut-butters, sprinkled over desserts or savoury dishes, ground into flour,  etc.

I guess the name says it all - a self fertile Almond that is highly recommended for home orchards. Produces heavy crops of soft-shell nuts with a sweet flavour. Suitable for Northern districts as requires less winter chill than other varieties. Plant in a sheltered position. Deciduous.

Almonds blossom in late winter around about August and for this reason it is good to plant them in a sheltered position where the blossom won't get damaged by strong winds or heavy frost.
