FILBERT OR HAZELNUT?

Lore tells us that French settlers first introduced the “Filbert” tree in medieval England. The English later changed the name to “Hazelnut.” As U.S. production expanded in 1981, the Oregon Filbert Commission promoted the name. There’s a reason Oregon named the hazelnut the Official State Nut in 1989. For more than a century, Willamette Valley orchardists have carefully cultivated their trees and crafted the traditions that make their harvest special. The popularity of our celebrated hazelnuts is bringing new growers to market. By 2024, Oregon’s hazelnut orchards will nearly triple in size to 80,000 acres, producing carefully selected varieties for each orchard’s microclimate.
