Almond Trees!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I just added almond trees to the site. We have 3 varieties of almond, the best of which is the Texas Mission almond. The Texas Mission needs one of the other two varieties for pollination.

Almonds are ideal for warm climates with mild winters and hot (miserable) summers. They thrive in these conditions! The need deep, well-drained soil, and they actually do well even if the soil is poor!

As strange as it sounds, our almond trees are grafted onto peach rootstocks. We use Nemaguard rootstocks for root disease resistance. Almond trees start to make nuts after only a couple of years in the ground, and start maximum production after 6 to 10 years. They will grow and produce for 50+ years. You can check out our offerings at .
