This is not the first time I mentioned Hazelnuts. Willamette Vally In Oregon harvests 3.5% of the world’s crop, 99% of the U.S. I’ve tasted the crops from a dozen of farms and walked down endless rows of filbert trees, but I have never seen how the nuts grow on the trees. October is the harvest month. I saw tons of nuts on the ground, but nothing still hanging on the trees until I was attracted to the strange-looking dried-out ‘leaves’ (I thought)… I am an Oregonian for over 25 years and I just made this ‘new’ discovery. How much more nature I’ve missed, I wonder.
From Filbert Trees to Filbert Nuts..
