Cobnut - Corylus avellana Cosford Cob

Cobnut Cosford Cob

A very reliable old cultivar, Corylus avellana Cosford grows well in a wide range of conditions. It produces medium-sized to large, oblong, thin-shelled, very nutritious nuts with a good, very sweet flavour which ripen in late September. It’s a vigorous, multi-stemmed bush, which should be pruned twice a year to keep it to a manageable height. With attractive, bright yellow catkins, it is an excellent pollinator for other hazels, and should therefore always be planted in a hazelnut orchard. Kentish Cob and Hall’s Giant are good pollination partners. Prunings make excellent pea-sticks and bean poles.
