Description

New Product!

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.

Can this cross pollinate a standard American Hazelnut?
Sw12345 on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting us! To our knowledge, a European Hazelnut will not pollinate an American Hazelnut.
Will it take 6 to 8 years before the tree will bear hazelnuts?
Carol C on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will. The wait will be worth it. :-)
Can two Lewis Filbert Trees cross pollinate with each other?
Bill K on Apr 22, 2018
