Pounds Of Irresistibly Sweet Hazelnuts
The Tonda Di Giffoni Filbert or ‘European Hazelnut’ Tree has been a popular hazelnut variety for generations due to its incredibly rich flavors and low maintenance qualities.
Tonda Di Giffoni Hazelnuts originated in Italy centuries ago, but now are home grown all over the world so people can harvest their own sweet and savory hazelnuts that are perfect for snacking and pairing with chocolate.
Once you try a Tonda Hazelnut you will become addicted to its salty and nutty flavors that have a hint of sweet caramel and toasted bread. They don’t taste bitter like other varieties, and it’s hard to stop snacking on them after eating only a few.
While you’re enjoying the crunchy texture and oily taste of Tonda Di Giffoni Filbert’s you will also be soaking in the health benefits. Hazelnuts are filled with vitamins and minerals like calcium, potassium, B vitamins and more.
The Tonda Di Giffoni is the perfect partner for many other hazelnut varieties. It acts as a pollinator that’s compatible with other popular varieties like the Theta and Jefferson in order to produce maximum hazelnut yields. You will have a lifetime of delicious hazelnuts in your own back yard.
Best of all, Tonda Hazelnuts are tough. While being cold hardy up to zone 4 they are also extremely low maintenance and require little care while being resistant to blights and mildews that harm other varieties.
Plant your hazelnut trees and sit back, enjoying their beautiful green canopies and bountiful harvests year after year while they flourish, without worrying about your trees perishing.

Planting & Care
The Tonda Di Giffoni Filbert (Corylus avellana 'Tonda Di Filbert') or “European Hazelnut” is one of the most cold tolerant of the hazelnut trees. Good down to -20 degrees, the Tonda is commonly planted in USDA growing zones 4-8, maturing to a height/width of 12-15 feet making it a semi-dwarf variety. The hazelnut tree is low maintenance, prefers a full to partial sun exposure, has a moderate growth rate and produces one of the more sweeter hazelnuts without any bitter after taste. The nuts are loaded with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B, potassium, calcium and pair wonderfully with chocolates. Be sure to get yours while they’re available for years of delicious snacking nuts and beautiful green canopy.
Seasonal information: Hazelnut trees are tough trees that can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.
Location: When deciding where to plant your Hazelnut trees look for an area that receives full sunlight, because this is where hazelnuts will grow best. These nutty trees can tolerate partial shade, and you’ll still receive an abundant harvest year after year if your tree gets at least six hours of sunlight a day. Avoid planting your tree in areas of your yard that are prone to flooding or that collects standing water or large puddles for extended periods of time.
1) Once you have the perfect location scouted out, dig a hole that’s just as deep as the root ball, and three times as wide.
2) Next, take a shovel or pitchfork and scrape around the sides of the hole to loosen the dirt up. Remove any debris like grass, dirt clumps, or rocks from the hole, and place your tree in it.
3) Make sure that your tree is straight and that the root collar is level with the surrounding ground.
4) Slowly back fill your hole and gently tamp the soil down as you go to eliminate air pockets.
5) Once the planting process is complete give your tree a long slow drink of water and then mulch the area to deter competing growth and to preserve soil moisture.
Watering: Keep the soil for your hazelnut tree moist, not over saturated. Feel your soil every few days, once it feels like it’s close to drying out give your tree a slow drink of water by holding a hose to its base and counting to 30 seconds.
Fertilizer: Hazelnut trees don’t require fertilizer often. We suggest waiting two to three years before fertilizing them. To give your tree a boost for healthy growth in the summer feed it some well-balanced organic fertilizer like formula 10-10-10 in the late winter or early spring.
Pollination: Hazelnut trees are not self-pollinating. They will need to cross pollinate with another variety in order to produce nuts. The Jefferson Filbert Hazelnut and the Theta Filbert Hazelnut make excellent pollination partners for each other.
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, damaged, or broken branches. Look for any crisscrossing or rubbing branches, prune them before they break on their own. When thinning your tree out to allow more air flow and sunlight to the center of your tree be sure to plan ahead and look at your tree to decide what to prune before starting, this will ensure that you don’t over prune your tree. Look for branches sticking straight upwards, these are non-fruit bearing branches that can easily be removed. Before pruning make sure that you have a sharp and sterile pair of hand pruners or loppers.
Weed Control: Weeds will compete with young trees for nutrients, so if you see any within 2 to 3 feet of the base of your tree it would be best to remove them. Remove them by taking a firm grasp on them and then pull them upwards out of the ground in a twisting motion. By spreading a layer of mulch around your tree that’s 2 to 3 inches thick it will prevent weeds from growing, and help the soil retain moisture.
