Country of origin: region of Périgord, a south-west region of France.
Harvest season: September.


Hazelnut trees have always been considered magic trees by farmers: the bush was the shelter of fairies, a plentiful harvest was a sign of the familiy fertiliy, whereas a branch of hazelnut tree was the diviner’s wand. The emblem of God Esculapio – today protector of the chemists – is a branch of hazelnut tree with two coiling snakes.

Beneficial properties:

Hazelnuts are the second-best provider of vitamin E, after almonds. Vitamin E (an anti-oxidant) helps prevent some types of cancer, such as baldder cancer. Hazelnuts are a good source of potassium, phosphorous and calcium. They contain manganese, an anti-oxidant enzyme created by mitochondria in cells, which protects cells from cancer.
