Hazelnut

from 12.00

Corylus Americana
 The American Hazelnut is a real hardy being, capable of withstanding a lot of rough times once established.  Native to the raw and open prairies of the US, this dense bush can produce many many little delicious Hazelnuts for you to enjoy through the winter.  Flexible canes and small size make harvesting easy from the ground, and it can be pruned back hard if it ever gets too big.  

Our offerings now feature an improved Hazel from seed saved from our plantings.  Selected from a particular bush with a sizable crop of excellent, very large nuts only 3 years after planting.  Very promising!  They sell out quick.

Our main hazelnut offerings are from seeds selected from a 300 bush planting on a raw, infertile hilltop loaded with weed pressure.  From that planting we select the largest nuts from the smallest bushes and grow them out for you to enjoy.

 Hazelnuts use wind for pollination so for best nut production you’d want a handful of plants near enough each other to cross.  The biggest and best looking nuts can be saved to plant out so you can improve your selections over time.  Great element in a windbreak, or on the sunny side of a hedgerow.
