Take part in finding the next hazelnut superstar in what we are calling Cooperative Breeding
You can find the next superstar tree that will add another tree to help establish a commercial hazelnut industry for the Eastern half of North America. If you find a worthy tree you will get to name it. We only ask you send us some scion wood or a sucker. Also, a portion of the proceeds will go towards funding our nut cooperative "NYTCA". We have done the heavy lifting in the last 25 years and are now cross pollenating our best trees with each other to get the next level of tree quality. To take part in our research, just purchase our "Prodigy Seedlings" in either a 10 or 25 pack from our catalog.
Fact: Native vs. Native Hybrid Hazels
Native hearty disease resistant hazels have small nuts and thick shells.
Native hybridized hearty disease resistant hazels have large nuts and thin shells.
Native hazels have been hybridized for over 96 years with 25 years in Cortland, NY
Z's Nutty Ridge sells trees that are good for the environment and good for you!
Also keep in mind we only sell the best trees we have. If we wanted to sell all seedlings from any tree we would have 10 times as much to sell and at a lower price. You get what you pay for!
