Corylus heterophylla. Hardy and very similar to an American Hazel. These seeds were grown from the cultivar Aldara which has superior nut quality and disease resistance. While each seedling will each contain its own unique DNA, they will have some qualities from their mother plant. Hazelnuts are an excellent food source, and a delicious perennial crop.
