Description from nursery: Jefferson is Oregon State University’s latest Eastern Filbert Blight immune variety. It yields large flavorful nuts that fill the shell with few blanks. It is expected to replace Barcelona as the leading commercial variety. A late bloomer, it is best pollinated by Theta or Yamhill.

Received plant in April from Raintree Nursery and planted directly in the arboretum.
