Almonds have long association with love & marriage and feature in many traditions. A gift of 5 sugared almonds is traditionally offered as a wedding favour to guests. This is thought to symbolise 5 wishes of fertility, longevity, wealth, health & happiness.In Greek tradition if unmarried females place Almonds under their pillow, they will dream of their future husband. In the Middle-East sugared almonds are thought to be an aphrodisiac and are often included in wedding celebrations.
Almonds are the most nutritious of all nuts and contain high levels of protein, Vitamin E and folic acid, they make a great snack and are a perfect ingredient for sweet and savoury dishes. Our Robijn Almond is a dwarf tree that produces a crop of sweet almonds.
The Robijn is a ornamental tree and produces beautiful pink flowers in the spring, the nuts are ready for picking in late August. It is a good hardy little tree, perfect for small gardens and is resistant to common health problems like leaf curl.
Hardy through most of the UK apart from inland valleys, at altitude and central/northerly locations.
