Prunus dulcis provides a wonderful crop of almonds, ready to eat off the tree! Having trees bearing edible fruits is the sign of a well established garden and can be passed from generation to generation, a great sentimental treasure.
The Common Almond tree is a small to medium sized tree reaching heights and spreads of around 6m if not pruned. It has an upright habit when young with ascending branches. As it matures, it adopts a spreading habit and becomes broader.
In spring, your Common Almond tree will delight the eye with attractive pink flowers that are carried singly or in pairs. The leaves contrast in a lovely green and are long in shape with finely toothed edges. The fruits are green skinned with a velvety feel and inside are the seeds which are the almonds.
Almonds can be used in baking and make delicious almond tarts, cakes and pastries. If blended with water, you can make almond milk. The oils obtained from almonds offer a host of health benefits. The oil is cold pressed and used in soaps, cosmetics and body lotions.
Plant your Prunus dulcis in any deep, well drained soil. It is fully hardy and enjoys full sun. Start a wonderful orchard in your garden and plant a Common Almond tree!
