Most Widely Planted Pecan Tree in AmericaThe Desirable Pecan Tree is…well…desirable for so many reasons. All the rage in pecan orchards and commercial grower’s fields since the 1960’s, there’s a good chance that the pecans you’ve bought from your local grocer are from a Desirable tree. If you’ve ever driven through southern states in the fall, the delicious pecans you get from those classic roadside stands are probably from a Desirable tree, too. Ripening in October, the Desirable nuts are some of the first “papershells” on the market. You can crack them in your hand. You will get two HUGE nutmeat halves to enjoy. For the grower one of the best characteristics of this tree is that the nuts grow in giant clusters and self-prune, meaning they naturally drop a few nuts from each cluster so that the tree can focus its energies on the nuts that remain. Result: bigger pecans. They grow quickly and it’s not unusual to get a 25 gallon bucket full of pecans from a healthy 5 year old tree. Desirable Pecan trees are also beautiful shade trees and can be excellent yard trees. The University of Georgia recommends a diligent spraying regimen to keep the trees free of Pecan Scab for best home yields.Shade, beauty AND home-grown nuts. What are you waiting for?

Old-time Favorite PecanPecans are great trees. They provide, shade, beauty and best of all – nuts! The Stuart pecan tree is an old time favorite. This is a stand-out among the pecan varieties, and is one of the most popular pecan trees in the Southeastern US. The Stuart is a hardy, upright tree. It is sturdy and doesn’t need you to fuss over it. It requires less pruning and training compared to its other pecan family members, which leaves you more time to enjoy sitting under its shade with a good book while you wait for the delicious nuts to ripen. Its nuts are medium-sized (but probably bigger than you’d buy in the store!) and produce roughly 50-55 nuts per pound with a heavy shell. Stuart can take a bit longer to start producing nuts than other pecan trees, but the wait is definitely worth it! The Stuart will adapt to most soil types and does well in full sunlight or moderate shade. Just give it a pollinator, good watering and plenty of room to grow, then sit back for the show. You won’t be disappointed!Order yours today! * Great shade tree * Loads of pecans * Old-time favorite! * Recommended pollinators: Hardy Pecan, Desireable Pecan .
