Aldara Hazelnut

'Aldara' is a Grimo selection. It is an "Asian/Quebec source" tree growing to about 3-4 m tall and spreading about 3 m wide. It is very productive and blight resistant. The nuts are medium size, round and begin to drop late August. We consider it a good selection for a main orchard tree for a zone 4-5 orchard. Pollen shed is mid to late season. Alleles are 25 and 27. In Midwest joint performance trials 'Aldara' showed good establishment and production after 3 years on silt loam soils. Yield in year three averaged 532 g per bush.
