Cobnut trees

Cobnuts, hazels and filberts are all names used for the same group of nut trees. Varieties which have nuts with long husks covering the whole shell are referred to as filberts while those with short husks are referred to as cobnuts. For simplicity we will refer to them all as cobnuts. Cobnut trees are the most popular nut trees grown in the UK. They are easy to grow and maintain but do best on well drained soils. They can be grown in most of the UK but produce the best quality nuts in the south. Fresh cobnuts are both delicious and nutritious. In addition to producing nuts, cobnut trees are useful as a hedge, windbreak or screen. Click here for a guide to choosing cobnut trees.
