The Almond Tree (Prunus dulcis; formerly: Prunus amygdalus/ Amygdalus communis) is a winter hardy garden plant with several advantages: its blossom in spring is exuberant and very beautiful as the white petals have a red dot at their base which makes the flower as a whole look pink. The flowers are self-fertile, nevertheless, one or more Almond Trees nearby increase the harvest. Peach and Nectarine trees, too, can pollinate the Almond’s flowers. The pollinated flowers develop to fruits with a furred, succulent, green peel. When it splits open, it shows a second, hard, light-brown, richly textured shell with the Almond seed in its center. Although the plant is absolutely winter hardy, it is best to plant the Almond Tree in protected place in the middle of other trees, in front of a wall or a hedge or in a patio to protect the early blossom from late frost. Alternatively, you can cultivate these small-growing trees in a planter and winter it indoors so that the Almond flowers will be among the first ones in a new year.
