This hazelnut is a cross of the American Hazelnut and the European Hazelnut. They are around 1,5 to 2 cm in size and ripen around late August. These were developed in Saskatchewan by Les Kerr and are so far highly disease resistant. 

 Growers Note:

Hazelnuts need to be harvested before the squirrels get to them. Start checking already by mid August and harvest hazels when husks start to turn brown. Alternatively installing a metal fence around the bush will keep your nut stash safe as well. Grow along with American Hazelnut for best pollination results. When planting hazelnuts avoid planting in rich soil, instead try planting in light and sandy soil. Soil that is rich makes hazelnuts grow too quickly and they will produce less nuts.
