Corylus maxima 'Kentish Cob'

The most popular filbert in the U.K., grown commercially in Kent. A reliable and heavy cropper. The nuts are long and large and have an excellent flavour. Produces short yellow/green catkins.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Award of Garden Merit


Available for delivery: late November - early May.


 

Cobnuts and filberts are both similar types of hazelnut. Easy to grow, they are both productive and ornamental and take up little room in the garden. The catkins provide some late winter cheer to the garden. Two varieties should be planted next to one another to ensure cross-pollination. The nuts are usually eaten ‘green’ in September when they are succulent with a delicate flavour. They can also be collected for winter storage and are delicious roasted. Cobnut and filbert bushes are available from late November to late April.

 

We are now taking orders for delivery in the Autumn. Click here to view our range of pot grown nut trees (available May to late August).

 

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
