Filberts are sold shelled and unshelled.
There are more than 100 varieties of hazel trees, some of which are referred to as filberts. Filberts are slightly larger than other hazelnuts and were long cultivated in Italy near the city of Avellino. The French refer to filberts as avelines. Filberts grow on short trees that are planted in groves.
