    Why are Hazelnuts called Filberts?
     
    How did the hazelnut also become known as the Filbert? Well if you believe folklore, the alias is said to have a religious origin.
     
    The most commonly believed story is that the peak harvest time for the hazelnut is mid to late August, which falls close to the feast day of St. Philbert, August 20th. Naturally, over time the hazelnut took on the name of the French saint, being called the “Filbert.”
     
    In the U.S. Hazelnuts have even more aliases also being referred to as the cob nut.
