Each variety has its own specificity
Below you will find all the information you need to choose the variety of nuts that suits your needs!
We distinguish 2 categories of French hazelnuts, the large calibres (called table hazelnuts) and the small calibres (ideal for snackng). The smaller hazelnuts are generally more perfumed and are therefore the favourite of our craftsmen. Table hazelnuts are more imposing and are often used in preparations or simply to garnish delicious dishes.
- Corabel: white, firm, sweet and have a very perfumed flesh
- Ennis: firm flesh with a medium flavour
- Fertile de Coutard: ivory-coloured, firm and perfumed flesh
- Pauetet: a compact, ivory white flesh with a very pronounced hazelnut taste
- Segorbe: a consistent flesh, aromatic and not very sweet

Pecan nuts varieties
We have the pleasure and exclusivity to offer you the first French Pecan nut harvest!
It is important to know that the pecan tree matures after 7-10 years. It will therefore be necessary to wait before having an abundant harvest. Nevertheless, almost 200 kilos were harvested in 2020. In other words, first come, first served ;-).
The pecan is wrapped in a smooth, elongated shell. Its sweet and tender taste is somewhere between a walnut and an almond, which makes it very versatile in cooking. The two varieties we offer are very similar except that the Western is slightly crunchier than the Pawnee.
