Cobnut - Corylus avellana Webb’s Prize Cob

Cobnut Webb’s Prize Cob

A compact tree with a weeping habit, Corylus avellana ‘Webb’s Prize Cobb’ is good for smaller gardens. Very reliable, with heavy crops of large nuts with a very good, sweet flavour whether eaten fresh or from store; one of the best for flavour. Cobnuts are a 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 hazelnuts fresh, or dry the crop carefully, then remove the husks and store in a mouse-proof place. Webbs Prize Cob is vigorous, but can be rather slow to come into bearing. Attractive catkins in late winter and the prunings make excellent bean poles, peasticks and wattle fencing
