Title: Re: Almond trees
Post by Betty_Swollox on Dec 4th, 2017 at 10:55pm
Hi Kev
The trees grown from seed will revert to their original form, i.e. the wild and bitter sort. These are fine if you want to use them for baking etc. but are really high-powered in terms of taste.
They also contain a slightly higher proportion of the cyanogen found in all almonds, other nuts, apple pips, cherry stones, nispero stones etc. but you can't really eat enough to kill you because of their strong flavour.
Best advice is go buy some standard stock from a garden centre.
Hope that helps,
Simon
