Beaked Hazelnut vs Killarney Raspberry

Corylus cornuta

Rubus idaeus x Killarney

Beaked Hazelnut
Killarney Raspberry

Beaked Hazelnut is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to North America.

It features smooth, grey bark and edible nuts. Beaked Hazelnut prefers a rich sandy-clay loam but will grow on poorer sites, and can be used as an understory shrub.

Killarney Raspberry is extremely robust, with some of the best cold and disease resistance available. This could be due, in part, to it being bred in Manitoba.

Its berries are very sweet and grow on sturdy canes. They are medium size and freeze well.

Killarney Raspberry is an excellent choice for prairie farmers looking for berries that will survive winter.
