Bare Root Nut Trees
Add some protein to your orchard by planting nut trees! Your choice should be decided by your palate and your climate.
Almond trees are botanically similar to peach trees, but they require more specific climactic conditions. Ideal situations include long hot summers and low humidity. The trees are relatively small, reaching about 20 to 30 feet at maturity. Almonds are one of the first to bloom so late frosts may destroy the blossoms or the small young fruit. Mission and Butte are a good pair; both are late bloomers and they pollinate each other. If you only have room for one tree, All-In-One almond is the best choice. When pruning your tree, bear in mind that almonds are born on spurs which remain for about 5 years.
Pecan trees are native to the southern and central U.S. Long hot summers provide the best environment for a good crop of nuts. The trees themselves are graceful, shapely and very large, reaching 70 feet tall and wide. If your climate is not ideal for producing nuts, the trees can be planted as large shade trees.
