Beaked Hazelnut
York 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 York Hazelnut is a high yielding deciduous tree. It produces delicious medium to large sized nuts that are great for eating or making a paste. Known to be resistant to eastern filbert blight.

It has a long bloom season and is compatible with most cultivars, making it a great pollinizer. Try pairing York Hazelnut with Yamhill Hazelnut.

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.
