Common hazel (Corylus avellana L.) is a valuable nut-bearing plant. Its shell strength plays an important role in processing. The diversity of species can be estimated according to the relative entropy. The shell strength has a significant value of 0.75, in some species under natural conditions it is the value of 0.31, and in cultivars on the plantation it is the value of 0.17. There is a close relationship (R2 = 0.94) between the relative entropy and coefficient of variation of the shell strength. To determine the relative entropy at a significance level of α = 0.05 and at the relative error of 5 %, at least 90 fruits are studied in the population, 18 fruits are researched under natural conditions, and 13 fruits are studied on plantations.
