My Hardiness Zone ?

Pollination

This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

I bought these trees for the flowers and ended up with a whole new hobby.
When should you harvest almonds? When should the drupe be removed.?
Sorry. Wrong email

BEST ANSWER: Hi Dan, This is a great question. Depending on your location almonds are ready to be harvested in late August through September. Knock or shake the nuts from the tree when the hulls open completely. After nuts are shook to the ground let them sit for 2 to 3 days to dry a little in the sun. The drying process is complete when the nuts rattle in their shells and the kernel snaps instead of bending. After you have swept or raked the dried almonds from the ground, remove the shells from the hull, and then remove the nuts from the shell. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us, remember that we're here for you. Have a great day!

How often do I water it?
Vivian B on May 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: About once per week unless you're in a drought or the soil drains really well. A good approach is to water when the soil is dry to the touch beneath the surface so that you're not accidentally overwatering your tree.
