Spanish Almonds for Homegrown, Heart-Healthy Snacking
Heart-healthy, versatile, and delicious—the almond is a favorite tree nut for good reason. And with the Penta Almond Tree, you can start growing your own yummy snack at home!
Unlike other almond trees, the Penta can be grown in a wider range of climates because it blooms a little after the late spring frosts—if you can grow apples and peaches, you can grow the Penta Almond! And despite its late blooming season, you'll still enjoy a big summer harvest from a mature tree.
Bred for the European almond industry—it's a big deal, we promise—the Penta's almonds are higher in heart-healthy monosaturated fats. For the health-conscious home growers, the Penta is perfect for low-carb snacking and homemade almond-centric recipes (almond butter, anyone?).
Plus, the Penta almond is more disease resistant than other types of almonds. Its shell is thicker and therefore less likely to let insects get inside to lay eggs. This also means your container-friendly Penta Almond Tree won't require the use of pesticides, if you prefer!
Start growing your own healthy, crunchy snack with this Spanish favorite. Order your Penta Almond Tree today!
Penta Almond Tree Pollination
Penta Almond Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Penta Almond Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: These trees can tolerate partial shade but prefer around 6 hours of sunlight daily. Avoid planting your tree in areas of your yard that are prone to flooding - well-drained soil is best.
Dig a hole that’s just as deep as the root ball, and three times as wide. Make sure that your tree is straight and that the root collar is level with the surrounding ground. Backfill your hole and gently tamp the soil down as you go to eliminate air pockets. Finally, water and then mulch the area to deter competing growth and to preserve soil moisture.
2. Watering: Feel your soil every few days. Once it feels like it’s close to drying out about 3 inches down, give your tree a slow drink of water by holding a hose to its base and counting to 30 seconds.
3. Fertilizing: We suggest waiting two to three years before fertilizing. To give your tree a boost, feed with well-balanced organic fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10, in the late winter or early spring.
4. Pruning: The best time to prune is in the late winter or early spring when your tree is still dormant. Be sure to remove any dead or broken branches, as well as crisscrossing or rubbing branches.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Penta Almond Tree
My almond tree looks well. Even though it is okay in cold weather. I potted it when it came I think around Thanksgiving. I'm keeping it in my kitchen near the sliding glass door so it get lots of light. It lost all it's leaves but every branch is now putting out new leaves. Can't wait to see what it looks like by summer. May put it out on the deck for the summer months.
