A cultivar of Corylus avellana L. ‘Husk hairy, longer than the nut. Nut of medium size, ovate. Shell thick. Kernel full, covered with a red skin.’ [Hogg – Fruit Manual p.132/1860].



Horticultural & Botanical History

Probably the Scarlet Filbert of the Pomona Brittanica [PB pl.73/1812]. No doubt an old variety but I have no information on its history.
