The Jefferson Hazelnut Tree is thought to be the best all-around hazelnut variety for commercial or home growers in the United States. This new hazelnut variety from Oregon State University is extremely insect resistant and is completely immune to Filbert Blight disease. The Jefferson Hazelnut Tree produces heavy yields of large tasty hazelnuts that consistently fill out their shells. It is considered an improvement over the Barcelona Hazelnut variety because it has much fewer blank shells, fewer shriveled kernels and fewer moldy nuts. The Jefferson Hazelnut Tree produces commercial quality and sized nuts while offering home growers who buy hazelnut trees a low-maintenance tree. The Jefferson Hazelnut Tree must be cross-pollinated with Yamhill Hazelnut Tree to produce its bountiful crop of scrumptious hazelnuts and to truly maximize your harvest, plant an Eta to pollinate its late-blooming period.
