Filberts (Hazelnuts)
Corylus avellana

Ah nuts!Small and attractive nut trees, filberts (hazelnuts) are ideal in yard landscapes.

Although a deciduous plant, it is in some phase of growth virtually year round.  Filbert trees feature long and attractive, yellow male catkins that form in early fall, tiny, bright red, female flowers that open in mid-winter, and delicious and nutritious nuts that are ready to harvest in September.

Filberts tend to grow as a shrub and rarely exceed ten to twelve feet in height.

Our oldest trees are beginning to die and the nuts seem to be very susceptible to worms.  We have younger trees growing to replace the older ones.

Along with walnuts, filberts were a cash crop on our farm for many decades.
