About the Texas Mission Almond Tree

The Texas Mission Almond tree or more simply put Texas Almond, is a producer of high-quality, small nuts with hard shells. It is popular with commercial almond growers and can easily be grown in your own backyard.

The Texas Mission Almond (Prunus dulcis) is a cultivar of the almond tree that is native to the Mediterranean region. It is known for its delicious, sweet nuts and its ability to thrive in hot, dry climates.

The Texas Mission Almond tree is a deciduous tree that typically grows to be 20-30 feet tall and wide. It has a spreading, rounded canopy and a trunk that is usually around 1 foot in diameter. The leaves are long and narrow, and they are typically a dark green color. In the spring, the tree produces small, pinkish-white flowers that are followed by green fruit that turns brown when it is ripe.

Growing a Texas Mission Almond Tree

Texas Almond is easy to grow and very hardy. It is also relatively resistant to pests and diseases, which adds to its low-maintenance qualities. One of the standout characteristics of the Texas Mission Almond tree is its ability to tolerate extreme heat and drought conditions. It is well-suited to growing in arid regions, such as those found in Texas and other parts of the southwestern United States.

The late-season blossoms protect against late-spring frosts. Texas Mission Almond is known for being partially self-fertile. Technically, you’ll get nuts from a single tree. But you’ll enjoy a much larger bumper crop if you add a second variety.

The Texas Mission Almond tree is a popular choice for landscapes and gardens due to its attractive appearance and its ability to produce edible nuts. It is also a good choice for those who live in hot, dry climates and want a tree that can withstand extreme weather conditions.
