Parent seed for this strain was grown in Saskatchewan where the less hardy trees of the Manitoba crosses were weeded out. The crosses were made by the Director of the Morden Experimental Farm in Manitoba. He crossed the prairie adapted native American hazel with breeding selections from the Geneva NY breeding project and distributed the off-spring across the prairies. The University of Saskatchewan is continuing with the hazelnut work. Blight resistance seems very good. Nuts ripen in late August. Suited for climate zones 4a-7.
