Hazelnut (Corylus maxima) (Filbert)

Native to the mediterranean region, but now grown all over Europe and North America, the Hazelnut bears sweet flavoured nuts on easily maintained, relatively small trees that are roughly 6 metres tall. The native American hazelnut C. americana is more resistant to winter cold than the European hazelnut C.avellana, but the European species produces the larger nuts.

The Black Sea coast of Turkey is one of the biggest producing areas of hazelnuts in the world. It is a coastal plant which likes to live 30 kilometres from the shore, at an altitude of 750-1800 metres above sea level. The climate is a significant reason why the hazelnut thrives in this region. Along the coast it rains 10 months a year and sees less than 2000 hours of sunshine per year. Although this is not great news for beach goers, it is for those of you who love hazelnuts. Hazelnuts are also being grown in New South Wales, Australia.

Hazelnuts are one of the best food-source of Vit E, supplying over 20mg per 100 gram portion. Hazelnuts are a source of the essential unsaturated fatty acid - Linoleic acid, and the best nut source of manganese which is the subject of research into nerve nourishment & the maintenance of sex-hormone production.
