By now you have probably heard of the impending Nutella crisis, as a tough season has lowered crop yields of hazelnuts and filberts have sent nut prices soaring. Hazelnuts and filberts have been known and cultivated for almost 10,000 years. Although the names hazelnut and filbert have been used synonymously, they are different nuts.
