Question & Answer
Will these grow in Victoria in Warburton area and if so which variety is the most cold hardy please...RegardsGreg From:
Here is some information I found for you from a great source: "Although a sub-tropical tree, they will tolerate moderate frosts and need cool winters to set properly. They will not tolerate late frosts and short summers and who can blame them. Minimum heat unit requirements of 2,000 for the months from October through to April are required. The optimal climatic areas are south-eastern Queensland and New South Wales. Some ares of northern Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia also meet the 2,000 heat unit requirements but can be more susceptible to early and late frost seasons. Pecans need 200-220 frost-free days." ( http://www.austnuts.com.au/pecans.html )
