Pecan Trees

Elliot PecanJust Us Nuts – Pecans

Pecans for Florida must meet one criterion: they must be scab resistant. Scab is a major cause of early leaf drop. Trees that don’t hold their leaves until first frost can’t store enough energy for the following year’s crop. This is one reason pecans typically bear a heavy crop one year and a light one the next (commonly called alternate bearing). Another cause of alternate bearing is poor pollination. Pecans are wind pollinated, and rainy weather during bloom prevents the pollen from floating freely through the air from one tree to another, causing poor fruit set. Whether you say PEE-can like us Southerners, or PUH-can, like our refined neighbors up North, it’s a great nut! Pecans do need cross pollination to set a crop, they are classed into pollinator groups, and you’ll need one variety from  each group to get the job done.

The Edible Forest
Lacking shade in your yard? Why not create your own edible forest. Planting a mixture of nuts and large growing fruit trees over time will give you a cool shady retreat to laze away a summers day under. Mixed fruiting forest are fun to work with, try this cool combination. Chestnuts with their large, coarsely textured leaves and broad, umbrella-shaped canopy of chestnut, mixed with the willowy beauty of pecan and the broad, heart-shaped leaves of mulberry.
