Soil RequirementThe almond plant grows best in a wide variety of soils from sandy loam to sandy clay, but prefers light, fertile, deep and well drained soils. The trees will grow best in soil with a pH of around 6.5, although they will tolerate acidic, neutral and alkaline pH levels.
EnvironmentThe ideal growing region for almond is an area that gets dry, hot summers with plenty of sunshine thus almond tree thrives in hot and dry climates. The optimum temperature range for photosynthetic activity is between 25-30 ºC. It has certain needs of cold but can be harmed by frost and this is the main limiting factor when growing almond plants. Very low winter and very high summer temperatures inhibit growth and fruit set.
WateringAlmond trees die easily if they are not thoroughly watered as much as they need. Almonds need 2 inches of water every 2 weeks in the off-season. 3-4 inches of water every 2 weeks is ideal in the peak growing season. You can reduce watering to 1 inch of water every 2 weeks during winter.
