Almonds | Standard

Available Varieties

  • Nonpareil: The premier variety in California. It blooms approximately the 3rd week in February; harvests at the end of August. Kernel is medium-large size with excellent quality and flavor, and flat which is in high demand by the trade. It has become the basis of the almond industry. Shell is paper thin, often poorly sealed. Tree is large and harvest easily.
  • Monterey: Blooms 2 days after Nonpareil; harvests 28 days after Nonpareil, somewhat late. Kernel is large size and elongated with a high percentage of doubles. Shell is soft and well sealed. A heavy and precocious producer. Tree is small to medium size and somewhat sprawling.
  • Butte: Blooms 5 days after Nonpareil; harvests 2 weeks after Nonpareil. Heavy producer with the highest yield of all varieties over the years in the regional variety trials. Kernel is medium-small with a semi-hard shell and is well sealed. Tree is vigorous and spreading.
  • Padre: Blooms 5 days after Nonpareil; harvests 26 days after Nonpareil. A productive variety and does well on Marianna plum rootstock. It has a medium-small kernel and a hard shell with a good seal. Tree is medium size and upright. A good producer with potential for high yields.
  • Fritz: Blooms with Nonpareil or 1 to 2 days after. It is one of the latest harvest varieties; 40 days after Nonpareil, but also among the most productive pollinizers for Nonpareil. Kernel is medium-small, ovate with a soft shell. Medium size tree is upright and somewhat spreading.
  • Aldrich: Blooms slightly ahead of Nonpareil; harvests 14 days after Nonpareil, excellent pollinizer for Nonpareil. Tree is of medium size and vigor. Medium hard shell. Well sealed nuts.
  • Carmel: Blooms with Nonpareil; harvests about 2 weeks after Nonpareil. It is a good pollinizer for Nonpareil, with heavy, early production, but its susceptibility to bud failure is a serious concern. Kernel is medium size and elongated; well-sealed, soft shell. Tree is medium size but more upright than Nonpareil.
  • Price: Blooms with Nonpareil; harvests 4 to 7 days after Nonpareil. The bloom overlaps the Nonpareil bloom almost perfectly. Like Sonora, it tends to alternate bloom. Kernel is medium-small, plump and has a paper-thin shell. It has a high number of double kernels. Tree is medium size, vigorous, upright and spreading.
  • Sonora: Blooms 3 to 5 days before Nonpareil; harvests 7 days after Nonpareil. It has good frost resistance. Kernel is medium-large, elongated, light colored in a paper thin shell. It is often poorly sealed. Tree is medium size with a slight spreading growth habit. It tends to alternate bloom.
  • Texas Mission: Blooms 6 days after Nonpareil; harvests 28 days after Nonpareil. The kernel is medium-small and plump. It is very well sealed, has a hard shell and low worm damage. Tree is large, upright and easy to train.
  • Wood Colony: Prolonged bloom coincides with Carmel and harvests approximately 10 days after Nonpareil. A consistent heavy producer. The Wood Colony tree is smaller than the Carmel, but has similar scaffold structure. Due to its compact size the tree is suitable for close planting.

Roostocks

  • Rootpac 40: Medium, approximately 25-30% less than GF-677, although with a very developed root system. Good with varieties of peach, nectarine, almond and some varieties of Japanese plum. 3 to 7 days of anticipated maturation depending on the variety. Produces fruit with good caliper. Rootpac 40 adapts very well to all climates, but particularly to warm conditions (low chilling areas). Rigid stem (early lignification) with little or zero branching at early stages of development.
  • Rootpac R: Rootpac R has shown compatibility with currently grown Almond cultivars. It has outperformed Nemagaurd rootstock for vigor at high pH sites in Wasco and Coalinga. It has also shown resistance to Phytophthora root rot associated with prolonged periods of soil water saturation. Resistance to Root Knot nematode and Lesion nematode.
  • Nemaguard: Nematode resistant. Good anchorage & excellent vigor. Prefers well drained, sandy loam soil. Very sensitive to wet feet or heavy soils. Very little suckering.
  • Lovell: Good anchorage and vigor. Prefers well drained loam soil. Sensitive to wet feet or heavy soils. Very little suckering.
  • Marianna 26-24: Plum rootstock. Shallow roots. Good vigor, slightly dwarf trees. Medium to heavy soil. Common for heavy soils that tend to be wet. Heavy suckering. Resistant to prune brownline.
  • Titan (Peach almond hybrid): Peach/almond hybrid. Excellent anchorage and vigor. Prefers sandy loam soil. Very large, vigorous trees. Very sensitive to wet soil conditions.
  • Hansen 536: A University of California selection of peach/almond hybrid. A popular high-vigor almond rootstock with good anchorage and found to be more tolerant of salinity, alkalinity, ph, and boron soils. Moderate resistance to root-knot nematodes, but not phytophthora. Requires very well-drained soils.
