Widespread Spanish cultivar of Almond, with superior frost-resistance, now widespread in Spain because of its many other qualities.
It was selected in a cold area by Zaragoza in the 1920's by the priest Mosen Rafael Ayerbe, who wanted to find an almond tree able to grow well in the area. Desmayo means Fainting and this is because the branches of the tree are exceptionally weeping, a bit like a willow. This doubtlessly helped the tree to resist frost. Almonds are long (that is what Largueta, the other word in the name, means) with good flavour, not sweet.
Here in Canarius we offer a grafted potted plant, grown in peatmoss or coconut fiber. Almonds are deciduous temperate trees and will do better if shipped in the cooler months.
