Russian Almond
Antonovka Apple

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Originally created in Russia, this apple tree is incredibly cold hardy and commonly used as a root stock for other apple breeds.

Cross pollination is required with another apple, pear or crabapple tree in order for fruit to be produced. Generally, fruit production does not occur until the tree has reached 5-7 years of age.

Its fruit are yellow/green, low sugar, late fruiting and great for pies and cider.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.
