Important: advice about pollination

How to grow Robijn almond trees

Plant in the sunniest and most sheltered spot you can find. Robijn is self-fertile so no pollinator is required. However cropping will be better if there are other almond trees (of the same or different varieties) nearby.

Robijn is reasonably resistant to leaf-curl.

Robijn is moderately vigorous and will reach a height of 3m-4m after about 10 years. Cropping usually starts when the tree is about 3 years old.

As with plum trees (to which almonds are related) it is best to keep pruning to an absolute minimum.
