Misleading/dangerously incomplete description and NO customer contact!
We were looking for almond trees to plant in the northeast. Found Hall's Hardy Almond here -- go read the description. They wound perfect. Problem is Hall's are NOT edible off the tree and in fact can be dangerous as they contain a toxin that must be processed out before eating!!!! This is mentioned NOWHERE it just says the nuts are sweet! They also are not particularly sweet even AFTER you learn how to process them for consumption. Not as sweet as regular almond trees. Someone could actually get ill from eating these without processing. When I learned this was probable and tried contacting the company to confirm both that and the pollination (as I was reading conflicting things) it took several weeks, multiple emails and attempts at contact and finally got a brief, one sentence answer with no concern that their website description left us with 2 trees that are not what we really wanted, nor were they safe without further work to the nut. #FAIL
