Do these almonds need to be boiled before eating to prevent cyanide poisoning?
Steve D on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This variety happens to be a cross between an almond and a peach, resulting in a hardier tree with bittersweet almond kernels. You'd have to consume a fairly large amount of kernels to be affected by the prussic acid, but many growers recommend playing it safe and boiling the kernels anyway.
Can I plant the halls hardy almond tree in a pot?
Kady S on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am really not certain. You would have to have a very large pot(s) to grow it in. I . I have three anI planted them below my garden and they are doing very nicely. In fact I have a few almonds this year..
Is this tree grafted?
Rosemary B on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, to be true-to-name, these almond trees are grafted. We typically use peach rootstocks like Lovell.
I live in Georgia, zone 7 and have read such mixed reviews on whether or not I can expect enough almonds to make it worth it here. What could I expect in this climate? Thank you!
Lindsay on Nov 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm in Mass, I have had Hall's for about 6 years. The tree will grow in almost any soil except excessive wet. Some years I get a tree full of almonds and other years no too many, I think it's from the spring weather conditions, flowering & pollination that make the difference... You climate some be better than mine for this tree.
A former neighbor had one of these trees and I remember the blossoms were beautiful. How fast does this tree grow? Will it survive an upstate New York winter?
SammyR on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: it has survived 2 iowa winters so far.it was a stick about 3' tall when I got it.it's about 5' tall & 5' in dia.and it's pruned back each year.
how does one harvest the almonds and prepare for consumption?
Susan on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When ripe the outer husk will split (discard) and the almond in its shell will be exposed as they fall to the ground. Roast at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes till slight light brown, cool & eat . Use a very strong nut cracker.
Can you eat the flesh o the outside of an almond nut?
Tracey P on Sep 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've heard of people eating fresh/green almonds (fuzzy green skin and all, or slipping the immature kernel from the hull first), but only when the fruit is underripe/picked early. The hull becomes hard and dry as the almonds ripen on the tree, and opens to reveal the shell that surrounds the almond kernel. Picking an almond early enough to eat the hull may be something to try with a fully sweet almond, but Hall's Hardy is half peach and it is suggested that you boil the mature nuts prior to eating them.
will this tree also pollinate almond trees near by?
bonnie c on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should, as long as those other almond trees are growing within 50 feet of this variety and they have overlapping bloom times.

Hall's Hardy Almond tree
I've had this now for one year. Tree arrived in good shape and was dormant. Shortly after planting it showed signs of growth and had a very good first year. It made it through a fairly mild winter in zone 5. Shows good signs of growth this Spring and I had flowers! So far so good. Can't wait for the nuts in the future.

Halls Hardy Almond
Great little tree. Growing strong even after being nibbled down by the sheep. I guess what doesn't kill it makes it stronger. ha

Great Almond tree that thrived and survived a northern Utah winter
I was happy that this tree made in it the cold northern Utah winter. The blossoms are pretty, pink and fragrant. I hope that in two more years I will have almonds.

beautiful flowers
I've yet to get a harvest from this tree, but in it's second season here in Philadelphia it's already grown considerably and was covered with flowers this spring. It's at least as good as any cherry blossom!

Halls Hardy Almond
We love our Halls Hardy Almond. It is thriving, and has survived one harsh winter and a very hot summer. We would recommend it to anyone, all the Stark fruit and nut trees we have purchased have been of the highest quality.

So far so good!
Has only been planted for one season but tree is healthy and already has almonds on it. Was beautifully flowering and nice addition visually for spring. Have not raised almonds before so not absolutely sure how to process them when they are ready to be harvested but am looking forward to it.

Halls Hardy Almond
My tree is in its second year and already seven feet tall. It was covered in pink blooms this spring and I'm looking forward to nuts this fall. The shape of the tree is great. I'll be replacing an almond tree I got elsewhere that looks puny next to my Stark's Hardy Almond.
