Almond trees

Almond trees are closely related to and in many respects very similar to peach trees. The fleshy fruit of the peach is replaced by a thin coating over the stone which has a thinner, softer shell and a larger sweet kernel which is the almond that we eat. Like peaches, almond trees are also much more at home in warmer, sunnier climates than the UK. Nevertheless almonds can be successfully grown here, particularly in the south. They have the advantage over peach and nectarine trees of being far less susceptible to peach leaf curl. They grow into attractive trees with a pink blossom that adds colour to the garden in early spring. Click here for a guide to choosing almond trees.
