in a few years, i will have a beautiful hazelnut tree that will help attract and feed birds. this will also help pollinate the Fingerlakes hazelnut tree that i bought.

We were told by a local grower that it is the best cross pollenizer

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

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

Do i need two different hazelnut shrubs for pollenation?
Kathy M on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All four filbert varieties offered by Stark Bros say you should have another variety for best yield. I believe some other varieties may not need a second for pollination.
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.

Barcelona Hazelnut
Have purchased FINGERLAKES, CASSINA and ROYAL, but Barcelona is my favorite! Have lost only one of the 8 planted in the last 3 years (unlike Cassina and Fingerlakes) and is flourishing twice as fast as the Royals. Actually produced one nut in the second year. Catkins now abound! Thank you to all the folks with their hands in the dirt at Stark Bros that produce, care for, prune and ship the Highest quality trees I've seen.

Barcelona Filbert Hazelnut
Tree arrived healthy. I planted it and it is thriving. It is as if it did not go though any transplant shock at all. I want to buy more varieties from Stark Bros.

Barcelona filbert hazelnut
I was so disappointed in this last batch of trees . The taproot of the hazelnut was cut and there was one small root remaining. No viable roots remained . I don't want to do any more business with stark bros , if this is going to be the quality if trees from here on out.
We lost four of the trees the fist time they were sent to us and then they sent replacements which were just as bad as the first.
I had never had problems before this. In fact I was extremely happy and referred stark bros to many friends. I would be doing them a disservice if I referred stark bros now. I never write bad reviews and I try to make lemonade out if lemons, but if it was a stark Bros tree I couldn't even get lemons .
