Canadian Buffalo Berry
Andrew Hazelnut

Canadian Buffalo Berry is a native deciduous shrub found throughout North America. This hardy, medium-sized shrub will tolerate poor soil conditions and produces attractive, edible–though very bitter–red fruit.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Andrew Hazelnut is a northern cultivar that is grown specifically for its cold hardiness. Typically, hazelnuts produce smaller nuts in colder climates, but for Andrew Hazelnut, this is not the case.

This hybrid variety is incredibly productive, growing medium sized nuts that ripen in late August. Pair with another Andrew or Aldara Hazelnut for cross pollination to occur.

The edible nuts can be eaten fresh, used in baking, and will make a beautiful hedge. Andrew Hazelnut is also eastern filbert blight resistant.

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