Turkish Filbert

Arbor Walk #127

Although the Turkish Filbert produces edible nuts, it is often outshined by its relative Corylus avellana, a more widespread species in the Turkish Filbert’s native range of Eurasia, for commercial production of hazelnuts. That being said, the Turkish Filbert is adept as a landscaping tree given its sturdy frame, dependable growth, and plasticity to various environmental conditions. And, of course, it comes with the added bonus of occasionally producing nuts that are edible after roasting.
