I love the nut and they should work in my zone.

I have a Barcelona Filbert Tree & needed a pollinator for it. I also heard your company is one of the best to order from.

Are these trees resistant to the Eastern Filbert Blight?
Mary C on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Casina is unfortunately not a variety that shows resistance to EFB. Sorry to disappoint.
What is the best soil for Filberts? Soil here is clay loam, somewhat rocky and very little organic matter. Should I do anything to improve that as in--adding compost, for example?
YankeeMaid on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Filberts (or hazelnuts) prefer a reasonably fertile soil with good soil moisture, but adequate drainage. Your soil has a number of issues and will definitely need some amending if you want your tree to grow and produce well. Compost is always a good addition, as is well-rotted manure or coco-fiber (you can read about that here:

It improves all types of soil, especially heavy clay, and will give your tree the drainage it needs.
In my youth we has a filbert and a hazelnut. They are quite different. The filbert is longer and lighter in color. The hazel nut has a flavor I do not like. I am looking for a true filbert tree. I am wondering how reliable you are if you do not recognize the difference between these two nuts?
Eileen S on Sep 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A filbert is a species of hazelnut, so all filberts are hazelnuts, but not all hazelnuts are filberts. Species which include "filbert" in the name will produce what you might recognize as the filberts of your youth.

Casina Filbert
It came as a nice looking tree, well packaged, nice size and lots of root tissue. After planting it pushed out new growth but after about 6-8 weeks the new tissue collapsed. I kept it overwinter to see if it would through a shoot up from the roots -- nothing. the other filbert it purchased at the same time (Barcelona) is doing wonderfully. I am unsure what went wrong. the Casina is a seedling tree. the Barcelona is a grafted tree. The rootstock of the Barcelona might be more suitable for my environment?

Doing suprisingly well!
While my Southern VT Climate is marginal for this variety, I have had good luck with the Casina variety from previous years, so am looking forward to the same with the additional Casina's I received this year. I would definitely recommend some attention to detail on this variety in terms of sun burn protection measures for the first year (at least).

Casina 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.

Grows great in WV Potomac Highlands
We grow fruit and nut trees here to produce RADA Brand Appalachian Spirits. The Casina Filbert thrives well here and we'll use the nuts for "Filbertino"

I bought 4 different filbert trees. At this point I don't know which ones are which. All are vigorous and healthy. Even set catkins the first year. I am a firm believer in buying grafted stock.

Filbert Hazelnut Trees
Last year I ordered (2) Hazelnut trees. One didn't survive. I called to report this, but since I didn't keep the ID tags on the trees when I planted them, I didn't know which one died.(duh) But the Lady I spoke with was so nice and polite she suggested I re-order both but I would only be charged for one thanks to their replacement guarantee.
Both new trees are doing Great!.

The Hazelnut trees ( Casina Filbert and Fingerlakes Super-hardy Filbert) that I ordered and received from Stark Bros's are growing and doing very well here in western North Carolina.
