NUT TREES ~ Filbert



Nut bushes are easy to grow and the nuts provide a nutritious addition to the diet and lend variety to the fruit garden.  They also create useful wildlife habitats while their colourful catkins brighten up late winter days.   Eat green in September or collect and store for winter use.  Generally cross pollination is required.




Corylus maxima is native to South East Europe but has now naturalised elsewhere.  It differs in appearance by having a longer nut, fully enclosed by a husk.  In all other respects, it is very similar to the hazelnut although the flavour is often considered to be superior.
