Almond trees, Prunus dulcis, are technically known as a fruit tree by botanist, with an appearance that is similar to the peach tree in its tree form, leaf characteristics, and then, the actual edible part is called the 'almond nut,'  and  that almond kernel corresponds to the pit in the peach  fruit.  Almonds are a very important commercial nut crop that is grown extensively in California almond tree orchards, where the nuts are begin ripening during the October, just in time for the Thanksgiving and Christmas marketing season. Tree ripened almonds are used in the preparation of candies, desserts and toasted nut markets.  Almond trees are very cold hardy and can be successfully grown in most States, even as far North as Iceland.  Even though grafted almond tree cultivars sometimes are self pollinating, Aarons Nursery experts advise that for best nut tree sets, two kinds of cultivars should be planted.  Grafted almond trees normally begin bearing when the tree reaches about 6 feet in height.

Texas Mission Almond trees are very well adapted for growing in dry Texas soils and have been successfully grown in California commercially. The Texas Mission almonds are large and the tree is very vigorous, looking very much like a peach tree, and another almond cultivar should be planted with this excellent tree, since it is semi- self fertile.
