To know: The hazel tree (Corylus avellana) of the Betulinée family, produces a fruit very rich in oil: 50 to 65%. The hazelnut is an achene with a woody pericarp called a "shell" and containing a single large seed. This fruit, more or less ovoid in shape, is protected before full maturity by a tubular shell, the involucre leafy in appearance and divided into irregular lobes. Shortly before the fruit ripens,
the involucre dries up and opens at one end, exposing the pericarp to air where it will harden and color, while the seed concentrates in sugar, oil and minerals. Once dried, the involucre easily detaches from the hard shell, which will hold the almond for months. This maturation takes place in the fall, and the picking can take place between the end of August and September.
