Almond trees
« on: August 19, 2009, 01:58:02 PM »
My wife and I are looking to plant a food-bearing tree.  We live in NW Louisiana and have a 1/8 acre lot in a subdivision and no trees in our small front yard.  We both really like almonds, and almonds have a great amount of good stuff for you for a survival food. 

Has anyone any experience with almond trees, how to plant, do they survive in this area of the country?  How big do they grow?  Are they really pretty, or do they turn brown and ugly like a pecan?  Do the branches fall at the smallest storm?

Thanks a bunch.

In Louisiana, shouldn't you be making pralines?  ;)

Yuck.  Too sweet.  Not good survival food in terms of tooth longevity.  Plus Pecan trees are self pruning, so they branches have a tendency to fall and break things like roofs and cars.
