Species: Corylus heterophylla

History: Asian Hazel is native to parts of China, Japan, Korea, and Siberia. It is grown commercially in China and nuts foraged from wild trees are also commonly sold in markets. These are seedlings of the variety Aldara, a variety selected by Ernie Grimo for its good productivity and disease resistance. 

Why We Grow It: Asian Hazel is 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 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.
