Butler is a popular American hazel nut variety which grows strongly and produces an abundance of large nuts with a good hazel flavour.

It has become one of the main commerical hazel varieties, thanks to its heavy reliable cropping and large nuts.

How to grow

Butler requires another different hazel variety nearby to act as a pollination partner - e.g. Cosford or Gunslebert.

Butler does best in the drier areas of the UK.
