HALLS HARDY
Zone 5

Halls’ Hardy blooms later, making it the best choice for colder areas. This productive tree produces medium sized nuts with a hard shell and delicious sweet kernels. Because of its profuse pink blooms, this tree is often purchased solely for its ornamental qualities. Plant in a well drained, sunny and protected spot.

GARDEN PRINCE
Zone 7

Grow your own commercial quality almonds on a container tree! Garden Prince is an attractive genetic dwarf that can easily be maintained at about 2.4m (8 ft) tall. Gorgeous, pink blossoms in early spring. Glossy, dense foliage. Bears large clusters of medium size, excellent quality, soft shell nuts. Ideally the tree should be planted in a large container, such as a wooden half-barrel, so it can be moved into a garage or basement for the winter, where it is cool enough to go dormant, but not much under freezing.
