Cobnut - Corylus maxima Nottingham

Cobnut Nottingham

Also known as ‘Pearson’s Prolific’, Corylus maxima ‘Nottingham’ is an early-ripening hazelnut, and, despite the name, is actually a long-husked filbert. Vigorous, comes into bearing early, and is a reliable, heavy cropper, often grown commercially. Cobnut ‘Nottingham’ is known to do well in Ireland. Large nuts with a very good, rich flavour. Highly nutritious source of high-quality protein, ‘good fats’, fibre, Vitamin B, folate, iron and other minerals. Harvest as they start falling from the tree. Eat fresh, or dry the crop carefully, then remove the husks and store in a mouse-proof place. Good pollinator for other varieties. Very attractive pale yellow catkins in late winter.
