Almond

{Prunus amygdalus}

Boron Deficiency in Almond

The young branches die back from the tip, and the development of shoots from near the base of the branch gives a “witch’s broom” effect. Poor nut development and premature fall can be expected. The nuts turn yellowish and may later blacken. Brown gummy areas in the nuts may extrude on the surface.
