Almond 'Princess' (patio)
Prunus dulcis, Prunus amygdalus, Almond Oil Plant, Sweet Almond
A very attractive dwarf almond tree which is ideal for the patio! Boasting an abundance of pretty pink blossom in early spring, Almond 'Princess' is grafted on to dwarfing 'VVA1' rootstock to form a small tree with good resistance to peach leaf curl. Although perfectly hardy, almond trees require a frost free winter and a warm dry summer in order to produce a crop. Sweet almonds bloom early in the year when few pollinating insects are around so flowers will need pollinating by hand for good crops. Height and spread: 1.2m (4'). Rootstock VVA1.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
