Resistant to eastern filbert blight and big bud mite. A compact western native tree that naturally grows to just 10-15’ tall, but produces more nuts than Barcelona (15-18’). Early-season clusters contain 3-4 nuts, which are a good source of folate. Foliage is soft and fuzzy, so the tree does double duty as a lovely ornamental. Ripens early-to-mid August. Toasting the nuts brings out their exquisite flavor. Make your own Nutella, use in desserts or eat out of hand. Best pollinators: Barcelona or Casina. Originated in 1997 at Oregon State University.
