Eta Hazelnut Tree
The Eta Hazelnut Tree is a compact and attractive nut tree ideal for your yard and landscape. Eta, actively growing virtually all year, feature striking, long, yellow, male catkins that form in late fall and delicious and nutritious nuts that are ready to harvest in September. We love roasting filberts as a topping for ice cream, in cereal, and for baking.
