Description

Hazelnuts (Filberts)  have been in our diet that pre-dates antiquity.  Hazelnuts have been cultivated since 4 B.C, but the recent  profusion of commercial plantings didn’t develop until the early 1900’s. Hazelnuts traditionally  harvested around the 22nd August each year in Europe, St. Philbert’s day, hence the name Filbert.  It is believed that hazelnut trees migrated from China to the Black Sea.

It’s said, that a Frenchman, David Gernot arrived to Oregon in the 17th Century with European hazelnut trees where he planted the first trees in the Willamette valley which reminded him of his home in France.

Jefferson Hazelnut has excellent texture and flavor, large kernel size, and kernel quality. Well suited for the blanched kernel market, chocolate products, and baked goods. Thought to be the best all around hazelnut tree variety available for home gardens and farms. Disease resistant.
