Filbert in Husk 2

Sacajawea Filbert

Corylus avellana L

Sacagawea is a high quality early variety. Besides being a beautiful compact landscape plant, the nuts are delicious and larger than some varieties and high yielding. Sacajawea is pollinated by the York variety. Harvest starts August at the nursery. The nuts are in demand as far as squirrels are concerned. Locate your filberts, also called hazelnuts, away from woods and trees where squirrels can move back and forth unseen. Plant them in the open. Squirrels would rather not run on the ground to a tree, as they are more exposed to predators. Planting 3 or 4 different varieties can increase yields. Space 10' circle Zone 5-8
