Lewis Filbert Hazelnut

This item is out of stock.

Supplies are limited so make sure you don't miss out next time by having us automatically notify you when it becomes available again.

Description

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.

New and alternate pollinator for existing filbert trees where I do not know the variety already planted. With Lewis I know it is not a variety I already have. We are trying to solve a pollination issue.

Just planted - nuts produced
Just planted this in June (it's not July 20th) and this week spotted two nuts on it. I removed them as the plant is just settling in but that impressed me - as did the size and thickness of the stem/trunk. This is a clearly a well-started plant.
