Filbert Hazelnut Trees

Because of their smaller size, Filbert trees (also called Hazelnut trees) are ideal nut trees for home growers. These trees can be grown naturally as large shrubs with many trunks, or grown as small trees through selective pruning. Leaves of the filbert or hazelnut tree are a valued food source for wildlife, including several species of butterfly. Once mature, nuts will drop to the ground for harvest and require a drying period before consuming. Filbert or hazelnut kernels are eaten raw, roasted, or ground into paste. Filbert/Hazelnuts contain significant amounts of protein, B-vitamins, and other minerals. Hazelnuts are found in supermarkets, usually around the holidays, but you can enjoy these nuts from your own trees starting in early fall -- adding to the benefits of growing your own!
