Hall's Giant hazel trees

Hall's Giant hazel / filbert tree
  • Pick: Late-season
  • Uses: Eat fresh | Cookery 

Hall's Giant is an old hazel variety, but it gets its name from the size of the nuts not the size of the tree - it grows as a compact bush. It is one of the best hazels if conditions are less than perfect.

The nuts are not as large as some of the modern hazel varieties - however the flavour is good, one of the best available.
