Corylus Maxima (Giant Hazelnut, Filbert, Cobnut)
These rarely seen sweet nuts, a larger-fruited form of the much larger more common Hazelnut, have been in cultivation for centuries, and make a tasty addition to any orchard or large garden. They are native to south eastern Europe and south western Asia, from the Balkans to Ordu in Turkey, and will grow in almost any soil, cropping heavily, with little maintenance, for many years.
Seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. Sow into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of year, cover to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; seed tray is best left in a cool protected spot and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in spring, regardless of when sown.
