PECAN TREE

Pecan Nut TreeBotanical Name: Carya illinoinensis
Description

Pecan Nut Trees are among the best of the multi-purpose trees providing a valuable nut crop and an excellent long-term investment. The trees are long lived and unlike other commercial crops don't have to be replaced in the short to mid term. Although most varieties are self pollinating (SP), planting 2 varieties one from each group will ensure optimum cross pollination. Pecan cultivars differ in the order male and female flowers mature. When pollen is shed early, before the female flowers are receptive, the cultiver is called protandrous (Type A), when pollen is shed late the cultivar is called protogynous (Type B).
