Corylus avellana These North American natives, also referred to as filberts, are a favorite nut for home gardeners and commercial growers. These true dwarf trees yield delicious, meaty nuts that are easily shelled. Irresistible when roasted and lightly salted. We've selected our varieties for their pollination compatibility, high production, and resistance to Eastern Filbert Blight. Trees prefer well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. They bloom in winter and are wind pollinated.

Initial Instructions
Prior to planting the bare root tree, soak its roots in water for 2-3 hours. Position the plant so it is even with the original soil line on the stem.

Cultivation
Water regularly during the first growing season, but do not allow the soil to become soggy. Apply a well-balanced fertilizer during the late winter or early spring prior to the onset of new growth. Follow manufacturer's application rates. A slow release fertilizer works well for container plants. Trees planted in windy sites may require staking. Prune during the winter months while the trees are dormant.

Pests & Diseases
These varieties are immune to Eastern Filbert Blight. Filbert worm can damage all hazelnut varieties.

Soil Type
Standard, well drained loam with plenty of organic matter. Hazelnut trees will tolerate a wide range of soils, but avoid heavy, poorly drained soils.

Light Requirements
Full sun to part shade.

Hardiness
Hazelnuts are hardy to -15°F or below, but flowers are killed at temperatures of -15°F.
