When the experts at Oregon State University set out to engineer the perfect Hazelnut tree, the result was the Theta Filbert. Conveniently sized for ease of harvesting, resistant to Filbert Blight and tolerant of harsh conditions, the Theta seems to have it all! Covering the tree are thick, green cabbage like leaves. Aside from the numerous qualities of the tree itself, the hazelnuts are some of the best quality in the world today! Nuts ripen in September, eat fresh off the tree or keep stored for the many culinary uses that hazelnuts are great for. Gorgeous, glistening, copper colored hazelnuts abound! You will need a cross pollinator to produce nuts, and the Oregon State University has created the perfect pair, the Eta Filbert which we also carry. Will also cross with Jefferson Filbert.
