ANCIENT HAZELNUT HISTORY:
Based on a manuscript found in China from the year 2800 B.C., the hazelnut (also called a filbert) was considered to be one of five sacred nourishments God gave to human beings. This lead us to believe domestication and cultivation of hazelnuts has been going on for over 4,500 years.
The hazelnut was used as a medicine and tonic. In 200 AD, the Greek physician Dioscorides emphasized the properties of the hazelnut as a medium to cure colds and grow hair.
It is speculated by some that the name filbert originated from "full beard", referring to the fact that the husk (or "beard") entirely covers the nut in some varieties.
OREGON HAZELNUT HISTORY:
1858 First cultured hazelnut tree planted in Oregon by retired Hudson's Bay Company employee Sam Strictland, in Scottsburg, Oregon.
1876 First significant planting by David Gernot: 50 trees planted along a fence row (as was customary in the Old Country) in the Willamette Valley.
1905 George Dorris of Springfield begins the first commercial orchard with over 200 Barcelona trees
1905 - 1906 Homer Kruse of Wilsonville, Percy Giese of Gresham, NE Britt of Newberg, Thomas Prince of Dundee and John Forbis of Dilley purchase nursery stock and are considered pioneers in filbert growing. By the end of World War One planting begins in earnest.
