Pecan Seeds - Northern Pecan

**Orders containing large seeds are only eligible for parcel shipping rates.**

(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.
