Default Hazelnut / Filbert trees.



Advertise Here

I need suggestions on varieties to plant and places to get them. Looking at Jefferson but I am unsure if I would get decent pollination from having 2 or 3 of the same or do I need to have an early and a late pollinator? Will an American filbert pollinate a European?.

zone 6b
Back yard holds water in spots after heavy rains.
About half acre of usable land with plenty of sunshine but want some room for more fruit trees.
Looking to start with 2 or 3. May grow more from suckers.

Hope you have better luck than me in Mi., hazelnut (6) bushed big for 12 years without a single nut, then died.

The wild hazelnut on my spread has given fruit.

"Do you need two hazelnut trees to get nuts?
You must grow two hazelnut trees with strong genetic differences, one as a pollinator and the other as a producer to get a nut crop. These trees need to be within about 65 feet of each other for cross pollination to take place."

I have planted about 10 of each around our property. It takes 4 years before the hazelnuts will begin to give nuts. I just found a cluster a couple of weeks ago and went to replant the nuts to sprout out some more trees.

I have yet to get any chestnuts, but the trees are starting to get some size on them. They are pushing 10 to 15 feet tall and seem to be growing well.

Might want to look at chinquapins instead, as they're more disease resistant.
