Our suggestions

Almond Independence®

Maturity : -25j Lauranne®

Self compatible variety, with sweet and flavoursome organoleptic qualities and a very high productivity in all regions.

Most planted variety in the USA.

Low alternate bearing.

Almond Florida (cov)

Maturity : -30j Lauranne®

Self fertile and soft shell almond.

Flowering time is early (same as Nonpareil or Marcona), and the maturity period is extra early (few days before Antoñeta).

High yield.

Percentage of kernel :

  • with the whole shell : 48%
  • with the inner shell only : 61%

Walnut Barquesa (cov)

Maturity : 0j Ferbel (témoin)

This new variety type Chandler presents an important qualitative evolution with a higher dominant size, extra quality of kernel, lower need of chilling hours than Chandler (600) and excellent productivity.

The strong vigor of BARQUESA does not penalize its quick fruit set.

Its late budburst period (LARA period, 5/6 days after FERBEL) limits the risk of spring frost in risk areas.

Almond Alaska (cov)

Maturity : -7j Lauranne®

Self fertile and soft shell almond

Variety with extra late flowering (a few days before Penta and Makako) and with an intermediate maturity (Ferragnes period).

High productivity

Percentage of kernel:

  • with full shell:53%
  •  with only inner shell: 62%
