    Mike you can barge them up here, probably cheaper than trucking anyhow.

    Paul I thought maybe you fell in the ocean havn't heard from you in a while.

    Does any commercial beekeepers get all thier queens from one source or one breeder queen? Maybe but not likely. To much at stake to rely on one variety.

    As can be said about so many things, the only constant is change. I have no control over the evolution of Almond breeding. I do, however, have a lot of control over the care of my hives. For the moment that is what I choose to worry about.

    Some of my neighbors have planted Independence almonds, and so far this new variety looks very promising. From what I have seen they produce heavy crops. It is a large soft shell “premium nut” that harvests early and comes of the tree easy. The processors love them.

    Here are Independence almond trees being tested in a bee free environment.
