Robijn almond trees

Prunus dulcis
  • Self-fertility: Self-fertile

Almonds prefer a Mediterranean climate but Robijn has been developed for northern European growing conditions. It flowers a bit later than other almonds (but still very early in the spring) and the blossom has some frost resistance.

How to grow

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.
