Planting Information

 

Pecans are a staple of the southern gardener. The trees grow large (50+ ft.) and add beauty to any landscape. The nuts are used in so many different ways such as salads, breads, butters and fresh out of the shell. We enjoy them fresh year round by keeping them in the freezer.

Plant trees 60-90 ft. apart.

 

For cross-pollination, plant a Type 1 (Protagynous) variety with a Type 2 (Protandrous) variety to coordinate the correct blooming sequence.  A lot of fancy talk for having one tree ready to shed pollen when the other is ready to receive pollen.  Bearing age can be 3 to 7 years, and will vary by variety and area. Available zinc in the soil is very important for good nut formation; consult your local Extension Service agent for recommendations. Our trees are a 2-3 ft. height with a 2 ft. tap root and far reaching feeder roots. Prepare a 2-3 ft. deep by 3 ft. wide hole. Mix soil with composted amendments and possibly lime,

as they prefer a loose soil with a pH of 6.0-6.5.
