2013 hazelnut harvest (Corylus americana)

The 2013 harvest from the hazelnuts we got from the Maryland forestry service.
 Here's a close-up of a cluster still in the husks.
 Here's a nut in the shell popped out of the husk.
Here are the 12 pounds after hand-dehusking.
They'll still need shelling, roasting and removal of the bitter skins. A lot of hand-labor to process them but almost no work to grow after they've been planted.
