Hazels (Corylus) are a genus of deciduous trees and large shrubs native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere. The genus is usually placed in the birch family Betulaceae though some botanists split the hazels (with thehornbeams and allied genera) into a separate family Corylaceae. They have simple, rounded leaves with double-serrate margins. The flowers are produced very early in spring before the leaves, and are monoecious, with single-sex catkins, the male catkins are pale yellow and 5?12 cm long, and the female ones are very small and largely concealed in the buds, with only the bright-red, 1- to 3-mm-long styles visible. The seeds are nuts 1?2.5 cm long and 1?2 cm diameter, surrounded by an involucre (husk) which partly to fully enclose the nut.
