Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Wood Colony Almond requires a pollenizer. You must plant one of these trees nearby (within about 50') for the tree to produce a crop of fruit.

Name: { Carmel Almond }
Description

Prunus dulcis

Wood Colony almonds are elongated with semi-soft shells. Wood Colony is successfully pollinated by varieties such as Carmel and Nonpareil. Wood Colony almond was introduced in 1985 by Burchell Nursery. This variety is planted commercially because of its outstanding heavy production. The trees tend to be small, so they are a good choice for a home orchard.

Planting & Care
Almonds prefer light, well-drained, somewhat sandy soil. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Plant almond trees in early Spring. Almonds grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Almond trees are prized as ornamentals because of their beautiful Spring flowers.
