Corylus 8-12' tall and bushy. [(C. americana Graham x C. a. Winkler) x (C. a. Skinner x C. avellana)] In the early 20th century, plant breeder Fred Ashworth crossed cold-hardy native hazelnuts with larger European filberts to produce the Hazelbert. Larger than native hazels and smaller than the commercial ones, they’re as delicious as each and hardy as heck. Grower Jesse Stevens’ 8-year-old seedlings started producing 3 years after planting and have been reliable since, ripening about a gallon of nuts per plant in very early fall. Like other hazels, they clump and sucker to form hedges. May be self-fruitful but for best nut sets, plant more than one. This crop of locally grown plants is on the smaller side, but once planted should establish with vigor. Z3/4. Maine Grown. (singles: 9-18" bare-root trees; bundles of 5: 6-12" bare-root trees)
