Product Description

Mark Shepard’s outstanding book Restoration Agriculture has made his nut tree breeding program famous. We are the exclusive Ontario importer of Mark’s stock. Here’s the description from his website: The parents of our strain of hazelnuts come from breeding programs in Alberta, Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin. Our own breeding goals include: youthful bearing, high yields, pest & disease resistance, suitability for low-input and certified organic conditions. All seed is all open pollinated. Seed is selected from the top producing plants and only the best are allowed to shed pollen in our pollen-controlled breeding plots. Nut clusters in their fringed husks (involuchre) are very ornamental. Autumn colors can be anything from yellow to red, orange and even pink. Nutritional equivalent of a soybean with 3 times the oil by kernel weight. (See also Controlled Cross Selected Seedling Hazelnuts.)
