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 produce sweet, tasty nuts in approximately 4–5 years. Hazelnut shrubs also have a high wildlife value — providing food, nesting, and 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.
