About My Edible Backyard


Why RodDaley1 Love's Edible Plants

I am a staff member of daleys nursery, I purchased my property 20 years ago.


Prime riverbank country, originally running cattle and decided to fill in the weekends with one of my favourite activities planting trees and I am an avid fan of the pecan nut. I started out with 300 pecans and to make it more viable for equipment I have gone to 930 trees and these trees are 14-15 years old. They are starting to get into some excecllent production.


This Year (2009) I have gotten 16 tonne.(55k) out of them this year.


I want to put my energy into our fruit tree nursery and have come to the conclusion that I want to sell.


You can run some cattle ( 50 head 


A lot of trees are planted on the property.


The soil is very fertile flood plane with my house elevated.


Rainfall is 48inches.


Rewards are both financial, the challenge, little work input for such a great reward. It takes me 1 month of the year to process all the nuts. The other 11 months you can go on a holiday.


I am loking at selling for a ball park figure of 1.3m Please feel free to contact me.

One of the biggest of the pecan nuts twice the size of shishonies and only planted as an experiment or novality. People like buying them because they are big. What you gain in size you lose in the quality of the nut.
