Description

These rarely seen sweet nuts, a larger-fruited form of the much larger more common Hazelnut, have been in cultivation for centuries, and make a tasty addition to any orchard or large garden. They are native to south eastern Europe and south western Asia, from the Balkans to Ordu in Turkey, and will grow in almost any soil, cropping heavily, with little maintenance, for many years.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown.
