Arbor Day Farm HazelnutCorylus spp.
Hybrid hazelnuts from Arbor Day Farm combine the characteristics of two North American native species—American and beaked—and the European hazel. Originally crossbred in Minnesota, these shrubs will likely produce sweet, tasty nuts in approximately 4-5 years. Hazelnut shrubs also have a high wildlife value providing food, nesting and hiding cover for many birds and mammals.
If considering Arbor Day Farm hazelnuts (or any hazelnut for that matter), be sure you have a bit of space, as you’ll want to plant 2–3 shrubs to ensure a good nut crop.
