reliable almond

Tree arrived in good shape. New sprouts are about two/three inches long and it is looking very good. Anxious to see some almonds in two/three years.

So far, so good!

This tree is putting out some nice looking leaves after one week in the ground in zone 9A. Time will tell if it produces any nuts!
