Cobnuts are a cultivated variety of hazelnut. Cultivated hazelnuts, sometimes known as filberts, have been grown in gardens and orchards since at least the 16th century.
Cobnut trees are hardy and grow well on a wide range of soils except those that are waterlogged. Grow in moderately fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to slightly alkaline soils, they will also grow well in acid soils.
