Freo market - 2
Hazel nuts, Frementle Western Australia
Honestly I don't know much about hazel nut. If my memory doesn’t fail me, I started to become familiar with the term hazel nut when I was in kindergarten. Long time ago, when my dad bought us chocolate with hazel nut. A part from that, I never saw the real hazel nut or even the shrub which produce the nuts. I’m not really into chocolate but hazelnut chocolate always my preference....ahak! At freo market, I saw the nuts and it’s quite expensive even though not as expensive as macadamia nut...well nothing cheaper here in Australia..kui kui kui!! Here is the fact about hazel nut;

The Common Hazel (Corylus avellana) is a species of hazel native to Europe and Asia.
The name of the species, avellana is derived from Avellino, a place in Italy.
It is typically a shrub reaching 3-8 m tall, but can reach 15 m. The leaves are deciduous, rounded, 6-12 cm long and across, softly hairy on both surfaces, and with a double-serrate margin.
