Aldrich

Medium-size, plump nut with a semi-hard and well-sealed shell. Expect upright and vigorous tree growth. Aldrich is a good productive variety. Terrific pollenizer with Nonpareil.

Butte

Medium-size to small and distinguishably plump nut (similar to Mission) with a semi-hard and well-sealed shell. Spreading and vigorous tree growth. A heavy producing variety.

Carmel Bro 2/3

Medium-size, elongated nut with a soft but well-sealed shell. The tree stands notably more upright than Nonpareil and grows to a medium size. Each of our mother trees has been tested for low bud failure potential. A heavy and early producer.

Durango

Good productivity in early years. The tree is upright, somewhat spreading, and vigorous. A prolonged bloom period starts 2 days before Nonpareil and blooms are very attractive to bees.

Fritz

Nut is medium-size to small, ovate-shaped with a soft shell. Tree growth is characteristically upright and somewhat spreading. A late harvest variety and a heavy producer. Energetic pollenizer for Nonpareil.

Monterey

This elongated nut with a tendency for doubling has a soft and well-sealed shell. Tree growth is somewhat spreading and vigorous to a medium size.

Padre

Nonpareil

Somewhat flattened, large to medium-size nut with a characteristically “paper” thin and poorly-sealed shell. An upright tree growth spreading to a large size. We use strains of Nonpareil with extremely low incidence of bud failure. Each of our mother trees has been tested for low bud failure potential. Most sought-after almond variety in California.

Booth

Sweetheart

(USPP Pending) [UC test selection 36-52] Blooms three days before Nonpariel. Pollen is not compatible with Winters.

Winters

(USPP #13286) [UC test selection 13-1] Nut is good quality with few doubles, twins or other distortions. The shell is thin and moderately sealed. Winters blooms during early Nonpareil bloom and its production is among the highest in the regional varietal trials. Nut quality is comparable and superior to Carmel. *Thin shell provides excellent crackouts, but has higher levels of ant and worm damage as compared to Nonpareil and Carmel.
