Pecan Seeds - Hardy Pecan

(Carya ilinoinensis) Zones 5 - 9. Deciduous Tree.

The Hardy Pecan is coveted plant among northern growers! This sought after nut tree produces wonderful, edible nuts after about nine years, and every second year going forward. Having homegrown nuts as part of your edible landscape is well worth the wait!  A happy, healthy pecan tree can live for 300 years and grow to 100ft tall.

** Please note that all members of the Juglans family (Butternuts, walnuts, heartnuts, etc.) create a protective substance in their roots called Juglone. This can kill certain other plant species within the root zone. Juglone from Hickories and Pecans is very mild.

 GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak seeds 24 hours. Follow with 90 days warm, moist stratification followed by 90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Start Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in deep pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
