Nice article about hazelnuts that mentions our Nature Tech Nursery, located in the Comox Valley. We still produce hazelnut trees for farmers planting orchards, and I believe we have the only trial orchard of all the OSU breeding program's blight-resistant cultivars currently available in Canada, plus 2 newer ones for research only that are not yet available commercially.
News Flash: Resistant cultivars are the best prevention of EFB
New funding announced to support planting hazelnut orchards in BC!
*McDonald (CDN PBRAF# 18-9479) and Wepster (CDN PBRAF# 18-9480) are licensed varieties of Oregon State University and protected both by patents in the US and Plant Breeders Rights in Canada. Purchasers of these varieties are not allowed to propagate for either further sale or expansion of orchards. Illegal propagation will be prosecuted.

We offer the new Eastern Filbert Blight resistant hazelnut trees developed by the Oregon State University breeding program. We currently
grow 13 hazelnut cultivars with attributes such as high yields, early harvest, and better nut fill, and smaller stature along with EFB resistance. We also grow a limited number of other perennial
plants, mostly natives and edibles suitable for agroforestry and permaculture, and offer contract growing, custom micropropagation/tissue culture and consulting services. Our nursery is not
set up for drop-ins, so please contact us in advance if you want to arrange a meeting.
