This may not be fruits, but I figure some of you may have some nut trees...
My hazel had a nice crop this year, but in the last few days most all the nuts have dropped just as the nuts were getting some color on them. We have been a little dry this year, but in no way have it been a drought nor does the tree look stressed.
The nuts that dropped (that have not been eaten) seem to be in good condition.
Anyone have any ideas what the problem is?

eating the ecotype one that has the longer spines and slightly
fleshier fruit. There was not much to taste (very weak) but at
least you can see from my image they are were juicy. I would
compare them to the fruit of seviceberry but the fruit a little
Longspine Black Hawthorne:
The other closely related species are "shortspine" black hawthornes
of which I have been able to find in Camas WA, but none of any of
which compare in production or flesh quantity to the previously
