~The most sought-after almond variety in California~
The Nonpareil shell is characteristically “paper” thin. Medium to large nut, somewhat flattened. Tree growth is large, upright and spreading. Almonds require another almond variety for pollination.
Extra large, noticeably sweet and juicy fruit with a golden brown skin. Tree has moderately vigorous growth and is productive. Harvest is late season. This pear is a cross between Nijisseiki and Imamura Aki and is superior to Niitaka. Atago has a long and profuse bloom period, making it a good choice as a pollenizer. Very little thinning required for large fruit. Fruit hangs well on the tree.
