I lost a hazelnut last year and need to replace it. I liked this one because it mentioned being cold-hardy, and I'm in Washington State on the north coast of the Olympic peninsula.

Hi, is the fingerlakes filbert resistant to filbert blight?
patch on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fingerlakes is not considered to be resistant to eastern filbert blight. The trees are not the most susceptible to the disease, and they may produce for a time while infected, but they can still get it. If this disease is an issue in your area, you might try contacting your local Extension experts for advice on other varieties that might be known to do well for you there.
