These new Ukrainian varieties of almonds bloom at the same time as peach trees, escaping damage by late frosts. Gardeners in many northern regions of the US are now able to grow this delicious nut tree successfully.
Almonds are small, attractive, upright trees, growing 10-12 feet tall and prized for their profuse, pinkish-white, fragrant flowers. While self-fertile, we highly recommend planting 2 varieties for best crops. Both varieties are late blooming and paired for optimizing yields. These trees prefer a setting with at least 1/2 day of sun and well-drained soil. Hardy to -20°F.
PRIMA: This earlier maturing variety is hardy and dependably bears good yields of sweet, soft-shelled nuts.
NIKITA'S PRIDE: Later maturing than Prima, bears good crops of high quality, large, soft-shelled almonds.
Bare root almonds are shipped at the end of March/beginning of April. Order early for best availability. Plants are 1-2 feet tall when shipped. Detailed planting information and growing instructions are included with each order.
PLEASE READ: Not available to HI, US Territories, or Canada.
