Hazelnuts Types: In Shell

In-Shell Hazelnuts





Round Hazelnuts: These are spherical hazelnuts with approximately the same length, width and thickness. These are of medium size and high quality.

They have high seed yields (efficiencies), as well as high fat and protein rates. All types that can be easily separated from skin and whitened belong to this group. They are easily broken because of their circular shapes.

In this group, Giresun Fat Hazelnut is the highest quality type in the world. Furthermore, Palaz, Mincane, Foşa, Kan, Çakıldak, Kara are in this group.





Pointed Hazelnuts: This is the type with the length a little longer than the width and the thickness. These hazelnuts produce more scrap when breaking. Therefore, they are mostly marketed in shells. They have types called Sivri and İncekara.






Almond Hazelnuts: This is the type with the length much longer than the width and the thickness. These are generally big and showy but have low quality. They are not legible for breaking and processing. They are consumed as snack, in shells and in undried form. They have two types called Circular Almond and Flat Almond.
