While Barcelona is self-pollinating, it is recommended to plant two different varieties for satisfactory fruiting. Barcelona can be eaten fresh or cooked. Big fruit. It is bud-mite resistant and has a high nut fiber content. The crumb is delicious and the nut to kernel ratio is 39-43%. It is mainly used to buy fresh (in shell) nuts.
