The Monterey Almond Tree is a naturally small tree – a perfect choice for backyard gardeners wanting to grow nuts!

As the earliest-flowering stone fruit, almond trees have the added bonus of also being an ornamental flowering tree, with striking white flowers in early spring. Almond trees are deciduous, hard trees with spreading crowns.

The Monterey Almond produces heavy crops of elongated almond kernels with a soft, well-sealed shell. These trees produce fruits that tend to double. Nuts are utilized for snacking, baking, candy, and making almond milk!

Monterey Almond is a small yet vigorous grower and serves as a great pollinator for Nonpareil and vice versa. It blooms two days after the popular Nonpareil. The harvest season is late for this heavy bearing variety, coming weeks after Nonpareil.

Almonds prefer light, well-drained, sandy soil and grow best in full sun. Plant in a location where chilly air or frost will not settle. This is a low chill variety, best suited for warmer climates. For cooler climates, you can grow Monterey Almond trees in containers that are brought indoors for the winter.

Almonds provide a delicious, nutritious, and extremely versatile addition to any homestead or garden!
