Almond - Prunus dulcis Robijn

Almond Robijn - Prunus dulcis Robijn

A medium-sized tree which has been bred for northern European conditions, Almond Robijn will do well in the warmer parts of Ireland. A highly ornamental tree which will produce beautiful, lightly scented, pale pink blossom early in the year, but later than most almonds, making frost less of a risk. In favourable years this will be followed by a crop of sweet, soft-shelled nuts; remove the outer skin and allow kernels to dry before storing. Almond Robijn is self-fertile and fast-growing. Some resistance to peach leaf-curl. Needs fertile soil, shelter and full sun. Prune as little as possible, and only in midsummer. The roots of Almonds are often hard pruned.
