Wonderful Filbert selection regarding production, though susceptible to Eastern Filbert Blight.

We needed a good pollinator for our existing Hazelnuts, and Barcelona was suggested.

How susceptible is this variety to Eastern Filbert Blight?
John F on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello, It has only been a year since planting and the Barcelona Hazelnut variety has not shown any blight or other diseases. Yet, I don't think the plant has been exposed. The area of planting is near suburban forest and not on farm land that has historical hazelnut cultivation.
I do eat hazelnuts from local/international sources but try not to handle international/local nuts and then handle my plants.
