These nut trees are often very large trees and can serve dual purpose as a shade tree and food producer. Nuts do best with long hot summers. Many of these nut trees are self-fruitful. Almonds are native to central and southwest Asia, may have been cultivated in the ancient world as early as 4000 B.C. Spanish missionaries first introduced English walnut (Juglans regia) to California in the 1700s and commercial walnut production began in the mid to late 1800s.
Almonds are often recognized for their lovely spring bloom. They are one of the first trees to bloom in our waning winter signifying a turn in the season is upon us. Almonds prefer an arid climate. Spring rains and cold nights are a challenge for a blooming almond. Often our customers enjoy them simply for their attractive growth habit and bloom. Harvest your almonds when at least 75% of the fruits have cracked open to reveal the seed inside.
Hazelnut (Filbert) grow around 12-feet high and spreading up to 16 ft. They are relatively small and easy to manage. Thankfully, the nuts readily fall off the tree, no ladders or special equipment is necessary for harvest. The trees produce sweet nuts in the late summer and into fall. We begin to see fruit in 3-5 years. They do require two different varieties for cross pollination which is wind driven so close proximity is important.
Walnuts are one of the best plant sources of protein. They are rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. They are also higher than most nuts in omega-3 essential fatty acids. They are delicious as a snack, tossed in salads and cereals/oatmeal, even incorporated into pesto sauce. We are offering two relatively small variety/rootstock combinations.
