Tons of Delicious Pecans!

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

The Hardy 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 Hardy Pecan 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 Hardy variety is very disease and insect resistant.

They're ready to harvest earlier than many other varieties and their thin shells make their nuts easy to crack.

The high oil content adds to their delicious flavor and is rich in Omega-3.

This upright tree only grows 20-30 feet tall and 15-25 feet wide, making it a great tree to plant in a small yard.

Hardy Pecans are even able to withstand an abundance of water... so you don't have to worry if your tree gets stormed on.

Hardy Pecan Pollination

Hardy Pecan are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

as long as I water when it's nesessary, watching for "the curl" of leaves, I know the trees will be fine. I've been learning how to and when fertilizer is needed, pruning needed etc... they are so very healthy from the nursery, that keeping them that way is a long as nature is kind.

It has only been less than a year I have had it. But here in northwest Florida the first year on a new tree is hard on them but so far so good. I do think its a strong tree. I would say buy one they are just fine.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Hardy Pecan

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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 Hardy Pecan 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 Hardy Pecan again after the transplant is complete.

All I did was plant another kind of pecan with it say 75 feet from each other. The other pecan was a citrus pecan which they both will cross pollinate each other. I hope this helps you out.
