-t- Pawnee Pecan Tree (Pollinator)
Pawnee Pecan Tree

The producer of large, sweet and abundant pecans

Pawnee Pecan Tree

- One of the country's most popular pecan trees
- Produces sweet, delicious nuts
- Very Disease resistant

The Pawnee Pecan has recently become one of the most popular varieties of pecan trees.

These trees produce much earlier than other types of pecan trees. Once it matures, it produces nuts even faster.

On top of that, they're some of the largest and sweetest pecans we've ever tasted.

The Pawnee Pecan is a cross between the 'Mohawk' and 'Starking Hardy Giant' varieties. It has become extremely popular since being introduced into mainstream landscaping.

These trees can live farther north than most pecans trees since it is very resistant to winter freezes that can kill other pecan trees.

The Pawnee variety is very disease and insect... Read more

The Most Popular Pecan Variety

Elliot Pecan Trees are in popular demand because of their reliable large harvests of large, plump pecans. Not only is this tree famous for large harvests, but it's also famous for their sweet and savory pecan flavor that other pecan varieties can't match.

Elliot Pecans have a sweet and buttery flavor with a hickory finish that's perfect for baking and cooking. They also make for a healthy snack that's great for eating fresh once picked right off the tree.

Don't stress over cracking your nuts, Elliot Pecans have thin tan shells that are easy to crack. Once the shells have opened they reveal golden pecans with plump, rich flesh causing them to be irresistible.

Once your Elliot Pecans are ready to be harvested around October you will have pecans by the bucket full that will be ready just in time for holiday recipes like the perfect pie or to give as gifts to your family and friends.

Don't forget about the Elliot Pecan trees' perfect match, The Pawnee Pecan tree. Elliot and Pawnee Pecan trees need each other in order to cross-pollinate and produce tons of nuts.

Known for being the toughest pecan variety available, Elliot Pecan trees can stand up to pests and diseases like no other pecan variety can. You will find Elliot Pecan Trees all through out the south, because once they're planted they grow into healthy mature trees.

Elliot Pecan Trees are drought tolerant, and able to withstand the dry and hot conditions found in most southern regions. However, Elliot Pecan Trees can also withstand frost and snow by being cold hardy to -10 degrees Fahrenheit.

These tough trees will make a perfect addition to any landscape with their attractive, lush green canopies that provide shade in the summer and abundance of pecans produced every autumn.

Due to their popularity Elliot Pecan trees sell out fast. Be sure to order yours today, before they are all gone.

Arrived in excellent condition.
The trees arrived in excellent condition. I am aware they are trees and won't be mature for several years. However, I am very pleased with the trees thus far. Good stock. Actually better than I have seen in some nurseries.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Elliot Pecan Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Elliot Pecan Tree .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Elliot Pecan Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Elliot Pecan Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I have a 1 year old Royal Empress. When & how much should l trim it back? What brand of fertilizer should I use?
Jim R on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Empress Trees love fertilizer. Organic fertilizer high in nitrogen works well. You can use Miracle Gro or a balanced tree fertilizer. You can fertilize twice a month in the growing season. Stop fertilizing before the tree goes back into dormancy. Additional fertilizing should only be done after the first year.
Let your tree grow for one entire year. If your empress tree did not grow at least 4 feet before winter dormancy, we recommend that you cut it to the ground at the very start of spring (a process called coppicing). This may seem odd, but it will grow a very straight, beautiful tree. Your tree(s) will more than make up for the lost growth in the first few weeks. We have seen some Empress Trees grow as many as 20 feet in the first year after being cut back to the ground.
Don’t worry about being exact. This process (coppicing) can be done any time of year, though we recommend spring. The new stump will have several trunks coming up from it. Select the largest trunk and pinch the others off. This one will grow at a very rapid rate and will grow into a very straight tree.
Large leaves grow in pairs up the tree (one on each side). Every few inches up the tree, you will see a new set. These should be left on the tree to maximize photosynthesis. These leaves will fall off later. Above each leaf on the tree’s stem, you will see a little bud growing. This is referred to as a “sucker.” It is a permanent branch trying to grow. Pinch these off until you get to the height where you want your first branches to grow. The higher you let your branches start, the higher your clearance will be under the branches

Is this pecan tree self pollinating?
Donna D on Aug 30, 2014

Can this Pecan Tree be grown in Zone 5 ?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2014
