Hybrid Hazelnut - Corylus spp. 'Precocious' selection - 10 seeds

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

All seeds are collected from a single plant. It is the best performer out of 10 hybrid hazelnut plants that I purchased from Oikos in 2014 under the name 'Precocious'. I have purchased many hazelnut plants from multiple sources over the years and this one has the largest nuts. The kernel quality is good, and nuts are about the same size throughout the entire plant. Oikos also sells the seed from which this plant came from, in bulk. Consider ordering from them, but last I checked they are listed as 'out of stock'.

Product Overview

They are currently being cold stratified.  Stratify until spring either in a fridge in the peat moss filled bag they arrive in or planted outdoors totally protected from rodents.  If cold satisfying in a fridge, monitor the bag in early spring, making sure they don't over sprout before planting.

Other hazelnuts onsite include, European Hazelnut 'jefferson' seedlings, oiko's 'precocious' seedlings, improved Americans, and wild Americans. The pollen parent is unknown. Enjoy the thrill of rolling the genetic dice.
