I’m really intrigued by this variety. Do they actually produce a decent amount of edible nuts or are they more decorative?
Not very productive
mostly grown for the ornamental value.
Such a shame they look so beautiful!
I got 2-3 nuts per year on a 4-5 foot tall, 3 + feet wide plant. This was with 2 8 foot regular hazelnut shrubs less than 12 feet away (so it wasn’t a pollination issue)
It was taken out by filbert blight and scale.
I replaced it 2 years ago with the Red Dragon variety. Supposedly blight immune (or at least resistant).
RD is still small, perhaps 8 inches tall.
Lack of pollination is part of the problem I think.
