Beaked Hazelnut

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.

Note: You want more than one hazelnut to improve yields.

The Frank Hazelnut produces nuts that are medium size and ripen mid August. This is one of the best eating hazelnuts for cold climates. It is a medium size deciduous tree from Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a productive tree that has been tested as both a pollinizer and a main crop cultivar for colder climates. The Frank Hazelnut is one of the cold hardiest hazelnut trees on the market and known to be resistant to eastern filbert blight.

Not all hazelnuts pollinate with each other so it is important to pick the correct pollination pairs. Two compatible varieties of hazelnut are required to produce nuts. Nuts will only be produced once maturity is reached, around 2-3 years.
