FAR NORTHERN PECAN (Carya illinoensis)


We have assembled a large collection of far northern pecans, some of which will mature nuts from Iowa through the southern Great Lakes region, into New Jersey. Most varieties described below bear medium sized nuts. To insure pollination, plant at least one protandrous (Type1, early pollen shed) and one protogynous  (Type 2, late pollen shed) variety in each planting.
