    Do Hall's hardy almonds like to have a buddy?

    I planted a Hall's hardy almond this spring and it's doing really well - it's about 4 feet tall and just got accepted for early admission to UMass...anyway, "they" say that they are self-fertile but that you better plant 2 to ensure pollination? What has been your experience? Will one yield just as bountiful an amount of nuts as compared to one that can cross-pollinate? Is it enough to satisfy the local squirrels' mafia-like cut of nuts and still leave some for me?

    I also heard that the almonds were bitter - are they poisonous? Would you tell me if they were? Will I suffer a demise like on that episode of G.I. Joe where they kill a giant gelatinous beast by feeding it orchards full of apples so it would choke and die on the poisonous apple seeds? Yoooooooooooo, Joe!

    The tree is self-fertile, but as is the case with all trees that are self-fertile they will produce more fruit if there is another tree. The seeds aren't poisonous, but they're also not like the almonds you would buy at the store. They're smaller and have a sharper taste which some folks find bitter.
