The Hall's Hardy Almond Tree features a medium sized hard-shelled almond, with a sweet to slightly bitter kernel. Roasting and salting will remove bitterness. These dwarf almond trees have beautiful, profuse pink blooms and are sometimes sold just for its beauty. Hall's Hardy Almond is a heavy bearer, and very cold hardy. It's also semi-self-fertile, but works better with a pollinizer. This particular almond tree requires only 800 chill hours, and ripens in October.
