NITKA Hazel Layer(cultivar) - The best Hazelnut for cold hardy regions of North America. Limit 3 trees per household.
NITKAis our trademarked name for what we believe will be the most planted tree on the East Coast! NITKA is a medium sized nut. NITKA is extremely hardy in USDA zone 4a, without any catkin or bud die back noted after 15+ years in leaf. NITKA has shown no signs of Eastern Filbert Blight (EFB) to date and therefore is very resistant if not immune. Very thin shell for a high kernel to shell ration of 52 to 55%. We doubt you can find a better tree.
We will be donating $1.50 towards The New York Tree Crops Alliance Cooperative for every tree sold! Help us make the native range of hazelnuts the leading production region for North America.
