Hazelnuts grow in clusters on the hazelnut tree in temperate zones around the world. The outer husk opens as the nut ripens, revealing a hard, smooth hazel colored shell.  Depending on the area of the world, they are either hand-picked or mechanically harvested.

One of the oldest agricultural crops, hazelnuts are believed to have originated in Asia and then moved into Europe.  They were taken to the U.S. by Europeans in the 1850s. Today the principal hazelnut-producing countries include Turkey, Italy, USA, Azerbaijan, and Georgia.

Also known as filberts and cobnuts, these sweet, rich, grape-sized nuts are marketed in the shell or as kernels which may be natural, roasted or further processed into diced, sliced, meal, paste or butter.  Hazelnuts are mainly used in confectionery and baked goods but are increasingly being used in salads, sides, main dishes, ice cream, and as snack items.
