Hall's hardy Almond
Reviewed By: Jamie Bowes (Baldwinsville, New York)
I've had 2 trees for about 5 yrs. Produced fruit 2nd year. Definitely peachlike. To harvest leave fruit on tree, it will turn green and split and produce a clear sticky sap like fluid. Leave fruit on tree until dried fruit or husk splits open revealing pit (almond shell). Pick split husks and dry in sun for a couple days. Husks will peel from almond quite easily. I let my almonds sit in storage all winter and crack for nut in spring. very hard shell. I live in central new york (apple crops common) Branches droop under weight of fruit and become susceptible to high wind. Difficult to mow lawn below trees. So far, very pest resistant. Will try eating fruit this season. Tasted before and seemed like peach but I wasn't sure if fruit was truly edible. I've read online several opinions that it is edible.

My almond tree is 14 feet and looking beautiful. We have had it six years and this year it has truely had alot of fruit/nuts on it. The fruit around the nuts is an added bonus...taste delicious like peaches....Does anyone know how to get the nut? I assume: eat the fruit; dry the nut; crack it open. Truely a beauty with pink blossoms and lovely fruit. Low maintenance also!!

I bought this tree in 1998. I moved two years later but the tree had grown so big, I was unable to dig it up and take it with me. It grew a multitude of nuts in the second year but I could not figure out how to get the nut out. Still a lovely tree. I frequently drive by the old house, (it's only 4 miles away), just to view the tree. I blooms out beautiful pink every year!

Trees were shipped dormant (sticks as some people refer to them) which is the preferred way to ship trees. Soaked, staked, planted and they are thriving. Bought two trees. One was planted in richer soil and is almost double the size of the one planted in a more clay-type soil environment. Still both trees are doing well. I hope to see beautiful blooms on the trees this year. Oh, and I bought two more trees.
