Russian Almond vs Prairie Sensation Apple

Prunus tenella

Malus x Prairie Sensation

Russian Almond
Prairie Sensation 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.

Prairie Sensation Apple is a cold hardy tree that produces large, delicious apples that are great for fresh eating.

Developed at the University of Saskatchewan, the apples produced by Prairie Sensation have been reported to have a juicy, crisp, and sweet flavor. Beautifully round in shape, these apples range from yellow to green with a reddish overlay.

Like all other apples, Prairie Sensation requires an additional pollinator, such as a pear, crabapple, or another apple to ensure fruit production. Keep in mind most residential neighbourhoods will have another pollinator present, but it does not hurt to get two just in case.

Note: We do not ship grafted apples to BC due to regulatory restrictions from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
