I assume that almonds grow on trees.
I have been toying with the idea of wanting to grow a tree, but think I need a little more information before I procede. I have not found a website with any good information on almond trees.
Here is my main concern with them.
I am zone 8, with a last spring frost of march 30 (max) and first autumn frost of oct 30.
being in Texas (near austin), I have never actually seen an Almond tree growing here.
My reasoning for this is because, I love the taste of almonds, but, also, I have been successful using almond oil as a base for making other oils from mint and rosemary leaves, but would like to try to make the almond oil itself on my own.
Realizing that it might take years for an almond tree to finally produce the nut, I may have to go with buying a sapling which has already been started, but, I am fairly clueless as to how to go about getting this all accomplished.
Anyone able to give me some help, advice, or some pitfalls that I might run into?
