  • Description

    A cross selected for disease resistance and productivity. Somewhat variable in form and productivity, some producing clusters of 8 or more nuts. Vigorous shrubs produce sweet, oil-rich nuts in 3-5 years. Siting them in the middle of a yard or field will make it a bit easier to get the nuts before the squirrels.
