Growing Pecans

More folks are growing their own food these days, so perhaps a nut crop could fit into the home landscape. Tammy Algood goes to Bethpage TN to learn about seed germination, what’s needed for good pollination, and expectations of yield over the course of the tree’s life (which can be 150 years).

Gardener Extras

  1. This is a Pecan (Type 2) 'Kanza' grafted onto a Giles root stock. It will have medium-sized nuts with a high quality tasty kernel. Excellent shelling.
  2. Self-pollination can reduce nut quality and greatly reduce crop yield by as much as 75%.
  3. Pecans require at least 3 feet of well-drained soil.
