Beaked Hazelnut
Yamhill 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 Yamhill Hazelnut is a tasty, relatively cold hardy hazelnut that is a popular European variety.

It is known to be a strong grower and has moderate eastern filbert blight resistance. It is a suitable pollinizer for the York Hazelnut.

Introduced by Oregon State University, The Yamhill Hazelnut is used by Ferror Roche for their candy and chocolate spread desserts.

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.
