Det blommar i snåren!


Visst likar det en blomma, denna härliga tvilling nöt. Undra om den smakar lika gott som den i Aladin-asken.

The photo is The Common Hazel (Corylus avellana) is a species of hazel native to Europe and western Asia.

Common Hazel is cultivated for its nuts in commercial orchards in Europe, Turkey, Iran and Caucasus. The name "hazelnut" applies to the nuts of any of the species of the genus Corylus. This hazelnut or cobnut, the kernel of the seed, is edible and used raw or roasted, or ground into a paste. The seed has a thin, dark brown skin which has a bitter flavour and is sometimes removed before cooking. The top producer of hazelnuts, by a large margin, is Turkey, specifically the Ordu Province. Turkish hazelnut production of 625,000 tonnes accounts for approximately 75% of worldwide production.
