Corylus a. 'Kentish Cob'

Quick Overview

Kentish Cob (Corylus 'Kentish Cob') is the traditional cob and is planted extensively in Kent to this day and is unique for its history and cultural heritage within Kent.

A cobnut is a cultivated variety of hazelnut, just as a Cox is a cultivated variety of apple. Mankind has enjoyed wild hazelnuts from time immemorial, and cultivated hazelnuts, sometimes known as filberts, have been grown in gardens and orchards since at least the 16th century. Children played an early version of 'conkers' with hazelnuts; the game was called cobnut or cobblenut, and the winning nut "the cob". Many new cultivars were bred in the 19th century. The variety Kentish Cob was probably introduced in about 1830 and was so successful it soon supplanted most other varieties.

 It is a species of its own and is not technically a hazel. Medium to large nuts in clusters of two to five fruits of excellent texture and flavour. Compact tree habit.

Fruit ripens in September October. Grows in sun or light shade. Prefers limey soil with good drainage. Can grow up to 5m, or prune as required to smaller size.
