NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Green Alder
York Hazelnut

Green Alder is a cold hardy, native shrub. It is often planted on infertile sites so it can fix nitrogen from the air and improve the soil quality.

Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.

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.
