Cobnut - Corylus avellana Segorbe

Cobnut Segorbe

A French cultivar of common hazel, Corylus avellana Segorbe is a large, very vigorous, deciduous hazelnut-tree, with a rounded habit. The nuts are round, small to average size with brown shells, are fragrant and have an excellent flavour. The large, slightly serrated leaves are mid-green, turning yellow in autumn. In February and March, yellow male catkins and tiny red female flowers appear, and can be vulnerable to frosts. The nuts can be picked from early September. Fruits better with a pollination partner, such as Gunslebert or Fertile de Coutard.
