Ebook – Cultivating hazelnuts in Australia

Co-authored by Colin and Nathan Carter with advice from Bruce West (hazelnut industry pioneer)

Suitable for anyone contemplating setting up a hazelnut grove as well as a good reference for someone with existing trees. Topics covered include:

  • Pollination: The hazelnut industry has had a problematical history owing to older varieties not being successfully pollinated. We now have newer compatible polliniser varieties that ensure good pollination and therefore nut set. The pollination issues and discussion of all of the varieties is included.
  • Establishment: A practical step by step approach to establishing a new hazelnut grove from soil preparation, liming, cultivation, setting out and planting. There’s also a section on managing an established grove and discussion on maintenance issues like weed control, de-suckering, pruning, watering, pests and diseases.
  • Harvesting and drying hazelnuts. This is followed by marketing and looking at value added products, like roasted kernel and hazelnut meal and paste.
  • Ornamental uses with hazelnut hedges and garden planting.
  • Return on Investment: A ROI spreadsheet for commercial growers will also be sent.
