I can not convince him that it is an almond tree. They are like firm peaches, I have even eaten a few myself. Is this because I have 3 peach trees also? My tree was loaded, and I refused to prune... sadly almost all the branches snapped. But I'm betting that it will be fine after I just chainsaw prune it. I plan to collect some of the pits off the ground and see what can be done with them. So far I have cracked one open and it was exactly like a peach pit... which I like. But I know everyone will want to know if you can make them taste like almonds from the store. I'll do one more update when I learn more.

The Carpathian English Walnut seems to be quite cold hardy, and easier to process, but is a Juglan. I'm worried about my chickens having access to fallen fruit.
