We are about taking action

Let go of apathy and hopelessness...
If you are thinking about starting your own Hazelnut plantation, the following information can guide you through the costs and profitability expected over multiple years and how your plantation should ideally be set up. Hazelnut trees have both female and male flowers on the same plant. The male flowers are borne in catkins that arise in the axis of the basal leaves on the current seasons stem, 150-200 male flowers on a single stem form the catkin. Catkins develop rapidly from August onward, then remain dormant during the winter. The female flowers are borne in tight clusters at three locations: singly at the basal leaves on one year wood, in groups of one to six on the catkin peduncles and on very short spurs on older wood. The flower buds are usually indistinguishable externally from leaf buds until they are open. Male and female flowers do not open together, female flowers blooming early March and the male flowers opening approximately 10 days later. Therefore, in a Plantation, there must be at least 2-3 varieties. For nuts to develop successfully, compatible pollination must take place. ​When the nut has reached full size in July, the wall of the nut begins to form a hard shell. In late August, the nuts start to change colour and will soon be ready to drop. In Croatia, nuts usually fall for several weeks from early September to the end of October. ​Almost all hazelnut varieties form suckers, but the quantity depends on the variety. In the case of Hazelnut trees, the CCRES team will realize a 4 year advantage in reaching full yield and will reduce the financial break even point from 8 years to 4 years.
