Corylus ‘Rode Zellernoot’ is an old variety dating from 1887 that is valued for both its ornamental and productive qualities. It is distinguished by its large, handsome leaves which emerge in May a rich wine red before turning bright purple and then maturing to green with bronze tints in summer. From late summer to autumn, it produces abundant crops of nuts, around 2cm in diameter, encased in purple husks. From January to March, Corylus ‘Rode Zellernoot’ provides further interest with its display of long pink catkins which provide early food for pollinators. It makes an excellent addition to wildlife gardens, planted as a productive hedge or as a stand-alone specimen. Partially self-fertile, it produces the best crops when it has at least one different pollination partner including wild hazel. Height: 6m (20ft) Width: 4m (13ft).
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. Water young trees during particularly dry periods until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
Hazelnuts are usually grown as open centred bushes on a short main stem of about 45cm (18"). Prune Hazelnut stems back by half immediately after planting. Select 3 or 4 laterals to form a main framework and remove all other laterals that are not required. In following years repeat this process each February until an open framework of 6 to 8 strong branches has been achieved. Once the main framework has been created Hazelnuts can be pruned each February while the plant is in flower to help disperse pollen for an improved crop. Prune the strongest leaders back by half and reduce the strongest laterals to 3 or 4 buds.
