The answer depends on who you ask, but in general, peanuts are nut-based, while hazelnuts are not.
There’s a difference in how they’re grown.
A hazelnut tree sprouts, and is then planted, in a field in Georgia, on September 1, 2016.
The hazel nut tree sprout in the United States is the only type of hazelroot, and the tree can’t be harvested until it’s grown.
The plant is considered a wild hazel, or wild tree, that needs no special permits to be harvested.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture regulates the harvesting of wild hazels for food, medicine, or cosmetics.
The Department of Health and Human Services regulates the sale and use of hazels.
Both regulate the amount of hazellas, their growth and their processing, as well as their handling.
In the United Kingdom, hazel nuts are also considered wild hazell, so are not regulated as nuts.
In Australia, hazell nuts are considered a class of nuts called ‘hazelnuts’, while hazellnuts are known as ‘nut-based’ in the U.K. The Australian Government has been making it easier to sell hazel and nut-containing products since 2012, when it passed legislation allowing the sale of nut-rich nuts.
