About the New York Hazelnut Tree

A blight-resistant hybrid Hazelnut!

Corylus americana, commonly called American filbert or simply hazelnut, is a deciduous, rounded nut-producing tree. The New York Hazelnut tree resembles European filberts in terms of tree and nut size. These are hybrids made with crosses with the ‘Rush’ American native hazel. Hazelnut trees are native to many parts of the Northern Hemisphere and can be found growing wild in cool deciduous forests.

In spring, male flowers appear in showy, 2-3" long, yellowish-brown catkins, and female flowers appear in small, reddish, inconspicuous catkins. Female flowers give way to small, oblong, edible nuts encased in a husk. Hazelnuts ripen in mid-to-late summer and are often roasted and eaten or ground into flour but are also commonly left for squirrels and birds.

Hazelnuts are relatively quick and easy to grow, they don’t require as much space as other nut trees, and they produce sweet, delicious nuts each summer. New York is resistant to blight.
