Almonds begin bearing an economic crop in the third year after planting. Trees reach full bearing five to six years after planting. The fruit matures in the autumn, 7–8 months after flowering. The optimal temperature for their growth is between 15 and 30 °C  and the tree buds have a chilling requirement of 300 to 600 hours below 7.2 °C  to break dormancy.
