Facts About Hazelnuts

Hazelnut fields are scattered all across the Black Sea coast of Turkey, where farmers harvest these nuts by picking them one-by-one from the branches, or carefully gathering from the ground. Hazelnut harvest starts in August.

After the harvest, hazelnuts are laid under the sun, and pre-dried until their leaves turn brown.

After this pre-drying process, the hazelnuts are separated from their leaves, and laid over canopies in thin layers to be dried under the sun. The total drying period is about 15 - 20 days, depending on weather conditions.

This natural drying process is an important step, and gives Turkish hazelnuts their special taste.

Let’s take a look at some of the facts:

  • The hazelnut is rich in protein, iron, unsaturated fat, oleic acid, vitamins B, C, E, Copper, Omega 9, Manganese, and is a good source of dietary fiber and antioxidants.
  • Turkey has a distinguished place among hazelnut producers, thanks to its high quality growing conditions and climate.
  • The shelf life of a hazelnut is one year, and moisture level is 2-3%.
