Turkish Tree Hazel

Turkish Tree Hazel
Largest of The Tree Hazelnuts

This species of hazelnut is known as an ornamental tree and is occasionally used as a street tree. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types and is easy to transplant. We have been growing a few different strains and have found them to be highly resistant to filbert blight . The yields are low but the baseball sized nut clusters show up in huge quantities every so often making you want to rethink it as a nut tree. The shells tend to be thicker than most hazels similar to the American hazelnut but the nut is twice the size. The trees take 10-20 years to fruit. Tree structure is like a large linden or oak tree.Tree has a white flaky bark.
