Our Feedback
I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.

Prunus x persicoides 'Robijn'

  • Beautiful pinky-white flowers are followed by a heavy crop of soft-shelled nuts with a gorgeously sweet flavour.
  • Self-fertile.
  • St Julien A rootstock.

Supplied as a bare root tree pruned to approximately 3-4ft (90-120cm) tall including roots.

Available from APPROXIMATELY late November / early December 2020

GBP1 or more £26.50 each
Qty:

After a stunning display of delicate pinky-white flowers in the spring the tree  produces a heavy crop of soft-shelled nuts with a gorgeously sweet flavour, ready for harvesting in late August.

Very good resistance to peach leaf curl, making it all but immune to the disease,

Will start fruiting approximately two - three years after planting.

  • Self-fertile.
  • Grown on St Julien A rootstock for an ultimate height of 12-15ft (3.65-4.6m) but can easily be kept at a height of 6-8ft (1.8-2.4m).
  • Top Tips
  • Almonds prefer a full sun position but will tolerate shade.
  • Being closely related to Peaches and Nectarines (you can actually eat the outer flesh in exactly the same way), Almonds flower on second year wood - so avoid over-zealous pruning.
  • Pruning is best undertaken after the tree has flowered and set fruit.
