Lang Tidlig Zeller Hazel

Hazel

Description: Lang Tidlig Zeller is a modern variety with similarly large and heavy crops of quality nuts to Gustav’s Zeller, with extra long attractive catkins and a compact tree shape.

History: Originates from Denmark.

Hazel Growing Tips: Best grown on shallow, less than fertile soils. The nuts can be stored 'wet' in winter in moist sand and will remain edible and in good condition until they germinate. All varieties contain healthy mon-saturated fats. After coppicing, sturdy vigorous one year shoots are used for basket weaving, hurdles, and the top of newly laid hedges or pegs for thatching. Make sure you harvest the nuts daily to avoid the attention of hungry vermin!

All hazels have separate male and female parts on the same tree (monoecious) but need cross pollination from another variety. There are no fully self-fertile varieties, partial at best.

Pollination Partners: Hazel Gustav's Zeller and Gunslebert.
