History and description of Kentish Cob

Kentish Cob also known as Lambert's Filbert is a filbert despite its name. It is the best known commercial variety in the UK. The characteristic long and flat nuts are covered by a long husk and born in clusters of two to five. It is a reliable heavy cropper. When mature the shell is light brown. The nuts do not all dehusk freely but the kernel is free of felt. It ripens early and has an excellent flavour as a fresh nut. Kentish Cob is pollintated by Cosford, Gunslebert and Halls Giant as well as wild Hazel.
