Corylus avellana 'McDonald'

McDonald is an upright, open-form filbert bush/tree that can be maintained at 10' tall. Wepster, as well as York, Polly-O, and Yamhill, are excellent pollinizers for this popular variety.

USDA Zone: 5-8

Grow Height:  10' 

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: August - September

Pollination: Needs an Early-Blooming Pollinizer

Ask a Question
  • I have a native hazelnut growing in my yard (Western WA) that doesn’t bear. Would this tree be a good pollinizer for a native tree?

    Your local native hazelnut is self-fertile and usually cross pollinates with another beaked hazel. McDonald has a different parentage.

  • Hello, once planted, how long will it take to harvest on your walnut trees?

    Hazelnuts usually begin setting a good crop within 5 years. Walnuts take more like 10 years.

  • How old and How tall are these saplings?

    18-24" in pots.

  • Are MacDonald, Wepster and Polly-o available for shipping to Califfornia?

    Yes they are!

  • How big is the plant

    12"-24" when shipped in a pot
