The hazelnut industry is new but growing in WI with more than 90 growers experimenting with hybrid hazelnuts produced from crosses between American hazelnut (native to WI) and European Hazelnut. The annual WI Hazelnut Field Day is intended to assist growers and help the fledgling industry grow in Wisconsin. “Hazelnuts are an exciting new crop with tremendous potential for fresh-eating and value-added markets”, says Jason Fischbach, UW-Extension Food and Energy Woody Crops Specialist.
