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 0 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.

Love it. Planted 48 feet from garage down wind 35 feet from the Pawnee tree. Love root rocket fertilizer used some on beets and late cabbage roots. They love it too. Can't wait to have pecans. Grew up in SC with them. They are well protected from direct wind damage. The pear and apple trees are thriving well too. Have over 60 pears this year. Deer are loving them

Planting & Care

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

Elliot Pecan Tree  Planting Diretions

The Elliot Pecan Tree (Carya illinoinensis 'Elliot') is a popular pecan for its abundant harvest of sweet, buttery flavored nuts. Elliotts are some of the largest of the pecan trees as they mature to a height of 70-100 feet tall and 60-70 feet wide so be sure to allot them the necessary space. They’re commonly planted in USDA growing zones 6-9, enjoy a full sun exposure and are drought tolerant as well. Elliotts are moderate growers that are low maintenance even when it comes to opening them, the tan shells are thin making it easy to get to the irresistible golden nuts. Be sure to obtain a cross pollinator such as the Pawnee to ensure proper pollination to enjoy buckets of pecans that are normally ripe by mid to late October. The lush green canopy also makes the tree a great shade provider in the heats of summer.

Seasonal Information: With the proper care trees can be planted during anytime of the year as long as the ground isn’t frozen. However, it is best to plant in the early spring or early fall. This will allow your trees to get rooted into the ground before the stress of hot summer weather or cold winter temperatures set in. If you plant in the fall, plant six weeks before the first frost and if you plant in the spring, wait until six weeks after the final frost. If you plant in the summer, make sure that your trees get enough water.

Selecting a location: When choosing a place to plant your pecan trees remember that they grow best in full sunlight. These trees can tolerate partial shade, but will need at least six hours of sunlight a day in order to flourish. Avoid planting your pecan trees in an area that’s prone to flooding or that collects standing water. Pecan trees can grow quite large, so give them enough space to reach their mature size and avoid planting them under power lines or too close to your home.

Planting Directions:
1) Once you have the perfect planting location scouted out dig a hole that’s just as deep as the root ball, and three times as wide.
2) Take a pitch fork or shovel and use it to loosen the soil around the sides of the hole. Remove any debris like grass, dirt clumps, or rocks from inside of the hole.
3) Place your tree in the hole and make sure that its level with the surrounding ground and standing straight upwards a 90 degree angle.
4) Next back fill your hole and gently tamp the soil down to prevent air pockets from forming.
5) Once the planting process is complete give your tree a long drink of water and mulch around the tree to conserve soil moisture.

Watering: Pecan trees are often thirsty ones. Make sure to keep your soil moist, but not over saturated. Check on the soil every few days, when the top soil feels like it’s starting to dry out give your tree a slow, long drink of water by holding a hose at its base and counting to 20 or 30 seconds.

Fertilization: Pecan trees should be fertilized once a year annually in the early spring. Use a well-balanced, all natural, organic fertilizer like formula 10-10-10. Water your tree thoroughly after fertilizing.

Weed Control: If weeds grow under your tree’s canopy be sure to remove them by taking a firm grip on them and then pulling them upwards out of the ground in a twisting motion. To prevent weeds from growing under your tree spread a 3 to 4 inch thick layer of mulch around the trunk. The mulch will prevent weeds from growing and it will also help the soil retain moisture.

Pruning: It is best to prune your Pecan trees in the early spring, or the early fall. You will need a sharp and sterile pair of loppers or hand pruners. Look at your tree and make a plan before pruning, map out what and where you would like to prune. Remember you can always prune more later and you don’t want to over prune. Remove any dead, diseased, broken, rubbing, or crossing ranches. Make your cuts at a 45 degree angle facing upwards to promote new growth. If a branch is infected cut it back about 6 inches past the infected area.

Pollination: Pecan trees are partially self-fertile. They have both female and male blooms on a single tree, but the male and female flowers open at different times which makes the spreading of pollen a little difficult. You’ll have a much higher yield of crops if you have two or more different pecan varieties.
