Description
This attractive Hazelnut is grown for its ornamental qualities as well as its nuts. Corylus maxima 'Red Filbert' produces red winter catkins in winter, which are later replaced by red nuts. The nuts are small but have an excellent flavour. Young foliage is deep burgundy, colouring to green throughout the summer. Hazelnut trees are not self fertile. For the best yields, grow this plant alongside another Hazelnut of a different variety. Height and spread: 4m (13’).

How to Grow
When growing Cobnuts, choose a sheltered position on moist, slightly acid, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Prior to planting Hazelnut trees, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Cobnut trees at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and water well to settle the soil.
More Info

Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. Water young trees during particularly dry periods until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.

Hazelnuts are usually grown as open centred bushes on a short main stem of about 45cm (18"). Prune Hazelnut stems back by half immediately after planting. Select 3 or 4 laterals to form a main framework and remove all other laterals that are not required. In following years repeat this process each February until an open framework of 6 to 8 strong branches has been achieved. Once the main framework has been created Hazelnuts can be pruned each February while the plant is in flower to help disperse pollen for an improved crop. Prune the strongest leaders back by half and reduce the strongest laterals to 3 or 4 buds.
