Description

Our grafted almond(Prunus amygdalus)trees are quality commercial stock grown in a professional nursery in south-east Queensland.

The trees are 12-14 months old, 70-90cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into the ground or a large pot.

Vayro is a vigorous, self-fertile almond tree that has an early start to bearing and blooms with masses of fragrant pink/white flowers in Spring. It produces heavy crops of medium size, hard-shell almonds with a good flavour. Unlike most almond varieties which require two types for pollination, Vayro is strongly self-fertile and a single tree is high yielding on its own.

If left un-pruned almond trees will reach a size of around 6-9 m but the trees can be kept to height of 2.5-3 m with annual winter pruning when the trees are dormant.

Originating is Spain, Vayro is suited to both mild and cool winter climates that receive around 250-300 winter chilling hours or more. Warm winter climates are not suited to almond production as flowering and fruit set can be poor. Chilling hours in your area can be checked here https://hort-science.shinyapps.io/ChillCalculator/

Preferring a well drained fertile soil, almonds are easy to grow and have very few pest problems. Unlike other stone fruit, QLD fruit fly is not a problem with almonds. They are frost resistant and drought tolerant but regular irrigation is required for optimal yields. Flowering is late season but harvest season is early. The husk is easily separated from the shell.

Vayro is a sought after commercial hard-shell variety selected for its precocity, high productivity, ease of harvesting and kernel quality. The trees are grafted onto disease resistant Garnem rootstock.
Hard shelled varieties are ideal if there is a potential problem with are parrots.

The trees are now dormant making them ideal for shipping and planting before spring. These trees are not bare root, they are grown in pots and have a much more reliable establishment rate than bare root trees.

We only send early in the week to help ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
Please note: due to quarantine restrictions plants cannot be sent to Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.
