Duplication with Hazel[edit]

There is considerable overlap and duplication with Hazel. There is unique content here about the Hazel nut. I am therefore proposing that the content about the plant, its description and taxonomy be moved to Hazel and the text about the nut be moved back to Hazelnut. This page would then become a disambiguation page. Any views ?

Hazelnut Allergy[edit]

Shouldn't there be something about Hazelnut Allergies? It's a lot more common than most people think and yet there continues to be no mention that it even exists.

Tractors or Forklifts?[edit]

In the harvest section it uses Forklift and Tractor interchangeably. Are they interchangeable in real life? If they are all references should be changed to tractor or forklift, or just not specified. I don't know so I'm not altering this

Health section looks like industry advertising[edit]

There is nothing specially healthful per se about oleic acids. The reference to 'diabetic fibers' seems meaningless. The comment of 'a unique and ideal food' is not supported.Ykral (talk) 02:04, 12 December 2008 (UTC)


I undid the move for the following reasons

  • It was moved without discussion, despite the fact that the naming convention favoured the current (and previous) name
  • It was moved to a weird compound name that isn't actually used.
