A Newer Version of the 'Barcelona' Hazelnut Tree

Here's Why it's the Super Hazelnut Tree:

  • Strong tree with large green leaves
  • Excellent producer of large, quality nuts
  • Resists blight and most diseases
  • Incredible hazelnut flavor

The New Breed in Hazelnut

If you enjoy Barcelona Filbert hazelnuts then just wait until you discover the Jefferson Filbert tree. Like a new and improved, super version of the Barcelona, the Jefferson is similar but with greater yields of larger nuts. It's also resistant to many of the problems that commonly plague Barcelona Filberts. That means concerns like blight, canker, and pests are a thing of the past thanks to a tree that was found to have a genetic mutation by the horticulturists at Oregon State University. Aside from its improved production and tolerance, the Jefferson Filbert is a sturdy looking tree with large green leaves that will stand out in your yard or landscape. Its peak height is 20 feet, but it can be maintained as a smaller shrub for easy harvesting.

The Taste is Undeniably Hazelnut Heaven

Few nuts can match the savory taste of a good hazelnut. And when it comes to flavor, the Jefferson Filbert is best in class. The sweet and buttery flavor makes it a favorite to enhance a variety of culinary treats. From roasted hazelnut sauce over pasta, to side dishes like green beans with bacon and hazelnuts, or spiced hazelnut hummus--there's nothing quite like it. For a rich, unbeatable taste that's out of this world, try hazelnut crusted fried brie cheese.

Jefferson (Hazelnut) Trees require a pollinator to produce nuts. For best results, pair with the Theta Filbert (Hazelnut.)

Now that your mouth is watering, isn't it time you ordered a Jefferson Filbert tree for your garden or landscape?

Tree doing well
I was hesitant to order a tree from an on-line vendor but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It was very well packaged and arrived in excellent shape. I left it to acclimate to the outside temperatures while waiting for my son to come and plant it for me. That took two and a half days. I ordered the planting mix recommended and planted, or my son did, in the front yard where it will get plenty of sun. I was concerned that my heavy clay soil would kill it but so far so good. I did buy some top soil to mix with the clay in hopes of providing a little extra drainage, just in case. The tree is doing well and would order another from this vendor. I live in zone 7.

Tree looks fair. Will know about it's survival next year. Soil medium in the pot (even when watered) was so loose, the tree could not be removed from the pot without the soil falling off the roots. May as well have been a bare root tree.

Relieved
My Jefferson Filbert Hazelnut trees have taken hold so I am feeling relieved. I was a little worried at first. I think the real enjoyment will happen next season when they start to fill in.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Jefferson Filbert Hazelnut



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Jefferson Filbert Hazelnut.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Jefferson Filbert Hazelnut gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Jefferson Filbert Hazelnut again after the transplant is complete.

When should I plant?
Nan H on Jul 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It really depends on where you live. In general it is best to plant trees and shrubs in the early fall. The idea is to give them as much time as possible to get established before they have to face climatic changes of cold, heat, or drought.
