Post Almond trees in Portland
I'm here in rainy old Portland, OR. I want to experiment with growing an almond tree. What varieties have people tried here, and were you able to harvest any almonds? Please let me know your experiences. Thanks!

Almonds bloom the earliest of all Prunus here, usually in February. Based on personal attempts, I'd say grow a dwarf in a heated greenhouse, If you can use bitter almonds, you might try P. tenella, bush almond, in a sheltered location. If you do get nuts from it, they are only edible cooked.
