Filbert contorted bush "Harry Lauder's Walking Stick" Mature height 8-10' Curled and twisted irregular branching rivals other small bushes for its eye-catching ornamental appeal as a specimen plant. In late winter the golden catkins hang down among the gray gnarled branches of the filbert, making it a plant for all seasons. The catkins shed their pollen very late. Red Dragon contorted filbert is the best pollinator since it sheds its pollen very late too. These plants are on their own roots, so they do not sucker bothersome rootstock growth. Also called hazelnuts, this variety is susceptible to eastern filbert blight. Space 8' circle Zones 4-8.

Jefferson Filbert - Corylus avellana Eta Filbert - Corylus hyb
Filberts Dessert In Hand Jefferson is the new filbert that is replacing Barcelona as the leading variety. Barcelona was the most popular filbert grown in the US, but is not resistant to Eastern Filbert Blight(EFB), Jefferson is resistant to EFB, and provides high yields of attractive nuts on an easily managed upright shrub. Pollinated by the late pollen shedding Eta and early pollen shedding York, which are also resistant to EFB, gives all three varieties excellent nut set. Introduced by Oregon State University. Plants are on their own roots. Space 8-10' circle. 15' height. Zone 5-8

Filbert in winter Over the last century, many advances were made for filbert nut improvement for quality nuts for the eastern US. Eta is a 2009 introduction that is immune to Eastern Filbert Blight and is a late pollen shedding cultivar that pollinates Theta and Jefferson. Plants are on their own roots. Zone 5-8

Theta Filbert Nut - Corylus avellana Yamhill Filbert - Corylus avellana
Filbert in Husk The hazelnut breeding program at Oregon State University directed by Shawn Mehlenbacher uses the genetic diversity in the genus Corylus to create new cultivars with resistance to eastern filbert blight. Theta is a 2009 release that is immune to the blight. Theta pollinates Jefferson and Eta with sizable nuts of its own. Plants are on their own roots. Zone 5-8

Filbert Yamhill A compact, somewhat spreading tree. For instance, in its 10th leaf, height is about 9.2' and canopy about 11'. Tree is productive, nuts medium size, Kernal texture, flavor and appearance are very good. Yamhill is completely resistant to Eastern Filbert Blight for a long lived tree. Pollinators include Jefferson, Gamma and Epsilon. Pedigree includes Sicilian, Spanish and Turkish grandparents. Space 10' circle. Zone 5-8.

Filbert Epsilon York is widely compatible with other newer varieties of eastern filbert blight resistant filberts. An excellent pollinator for McDonald, Wepster,Dorris and Sacajawea and early receptivity of Jefferson. It should be useful for decades to come. To get good coverage throughout the bloom of Jefferson use York for early receptivity. Space 10' circles Zones 4-8

McDonald Filbert - Corylus avellana Wepster Filbert - Corylus avellana
Filbert McDonald McDonald is a new filbert variety. It has high resistance to Eastern Filbert Blight. An important consideration for areas of the US where filberts grow.The tree's mature size is grower friendly, easy to manage and harvest. Excellent kernel quality with high yields. Occasional pruning is beneficial to allow sun into the canopy. Zones 4-8 Space 10-12'

Filbert Wepster Wepster is a new filbert developed by Oregon State University. It is high yeilding and blight resistant. The diameter of the kernel is 11-13 millimeters, the perfect size for chocolate industries. 15' at maturity the tree is resistant to eastern filbert blight. Wepster is also immune to big bud mites, which feed on the flower buds and cause them to die. In a 5 year trial Wepster averaged 57 pounds of nuts (including shells) per year. Wepster is pollinated by York. Zones 4-8 Space 12' circles or as close as 6 feet for hedge.

Dorris Filbert - Corylus avellana Felix Filbert - Corylus avellana
Filbert Jefferson Summer Dorris is a new hazelnut cultivar for the blanched kernel and in-shell markets. It was released by the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station in Feb. 2011. It combines high resistance to eastern filbert blight (EFB) caused by the fungus Anisogramma anomala and bud mites (primarily Phytoptus avellanae Nal.) with high nut yield, medium nut size, attractive nuts and kernels, and excellent kernel flavor. Compared with the standard Barcelona, Dorris has smaller trees, similar yields per tree, higher nut yield efficiency, and similar nut maturity. Most of the pellicle is removed from Dorris kernels by dry heat, giving an attractive white kernel. Also, kernel texture and flavor are excellent, making them suitable for many end uses, although they are larger than ideal for the kernel market. Large nuts of Dorris are also suited to the in-shell market. Zones 4-8 Space 12'circles.

Filbert-Felix Felix Filbert named after a French tree importer who introduced popular hazelnut varieties in the 1800s to Oregon, can serve as a pollenizer for Jefferson, a recently introduced EFB-resistant standard variety. York's earlier pollenshed leaves off where Theta takes over to give total pollenation to Jefferson for the second-half of the winter pollination season. Felix can be used during the first half. With that combination you get good coverage throughout the bloom. York is also Filbert Blight resistant. Zones 4-8 Space 10-12'circle
