Conveniently-Sized Hazelnut Can Produce in 1 Year

Experts at Oregon State University set out to engineer the perfect Hazelnut Tree, and the result was the Theta Filbert. Aside from the numerous qualities of the tree itself, the hazelnuts are some of the best we've seen. Gorgeous, glistening, copper-colored hazelnuts abound. Created to produce high yields, the Theta's nuts fill their husks in great numbers. What's more, the Theta's flowers will pollinate and help increase production in your Jefferson Filbert Trees as well.

Great tree ready to plant when I received it
Arrived promptly and in excellent condition!
Purchased a Theta, Jefferson and a York to complement my existing Americans. Plants arrived promptly, packaged properly, and in excellent condition. Can't wait to see them flourish! Can't wait for the Tonda di Giffoni to become available as well. I highly recommend FGT!
Really too early to tell.
We are planting in south central Iowa in an old fence line on a high hill. I managed to get them planted within 48 hours of delivery. The root ball appeared to be slightly dry when I opened the bag, so I oversized the hole, staked the trees, and flooded it with water. The trees are looking well and I have not watered since. (We have been getting about 3" of rain per week on average. They looked better within a day or two than when they arrived. Plan to order more in the future.
We're thrilled to hear that your trees are doing well and we cannot wait to see how they do!
Tree came in excellent condition and I transplanted it in a good potting soil in a thirty gallon pot just to get it established so I can water it good and later transplant it .
Planting & Care
1. Planting: These trees can tolerate partial shade but prefer around 6 hours of sunlight daily. Avoid planting your tree in areas of your yard that are prone to flooding...well-drained soil is best.
Dig a hole that’s just as deep as the root ball, and three times as wide. Make sure that your tree is straight and that the root collar is level with the surrounding ground. Backfill your hole and gently tamp the soil down as you go to eliminate air pockets. Finally, water and then mulch the area to deter competing growth and to preserve soil moisture.
2. Watering: Feel your soil every few days. Once it feels like it’s close to drying out about 3 inches down, give your tree a slow drink of water by holding a hose to its base and counting to 30 seconds.
3. Fertilizing: We suggest waiting two to three years before fertilizing. To give your tree a boost, feed with well-balanced organic fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10, in the late winter or early spring.
4. Pruning: The best time to prune is in the late winter or early spring when your tree is still dormant. Be sure to remove any dead or broken branches, as well as crisscrossing or rubbing branches.
