Gunslebert is a relatively new hazel nut variety which produces substantially heavier crops and larger nuts than the traditional English varieties. It is also precocious and comes into bearing within a couple of years of planting.

 

 

How to grow

Gunslebert is of low to medium vigour. It is partially self-fertile and can be pollinated by other varieties including the Common Hazel which is widespread in UK hedgerows.

Gunslebert produces plenty of catkins and is a good pollinator for other hazel varieties, including Butler, Hall's Giant, and Lange Tidling Zeller.
