Northern Pecan – A Wood-Friendly Tree with Buttery Nuts

Why Northern Pecan (Carya Illinoinensis)?

The pecan tree is a hickory indigenous to the area around the Mississippi River and northern Mexico. The monoecious nature of the northern pecan tree manifests itself in the presence of both male and female blooms on the same plant, so it is self-pollinating. The seed itself is a kind of nut that may be eaten; however, for the optimum nut output, it is necessary to cultivate more than one species of pecan tree. The nuts reach full maturity around the middle of October and are packed with many essential nutrients.


Pecans may be eaten, and their seeds have a taste similar to that of creamy butter. You may eat them fresh or use them in cooking, especially in sweet confectioneries like pecan pie.


A pecan nut has around 14 percent carbs, 9 percent protein, 4% water, and 72% fat. Altogether, pecans provide 690 calories and are an abundant source of many different nutrients.


Pecan wood is utilized in manufacturing furniture and as flavoring fuel for smoking meats, giving grilled dishes a sweet and nutty taste—better than the flavor imparted by many fruit woods.

Pollination Information

Pollination of Northern Pecan Tree (2-3 Foot) (Carya illinoinensis):

Pecan trees are monoecious, meaning they have separate male and female flowers on the same tree. The male catkins release pollen, which is carried by the wind to the female flowers for pollination. Once pollinated, the female flowers develop into pecan nuts, which mature in the fall. Pecan trees are wind-pollinated and rely on proper spacing between trees to ensure good pollination and nut set. Pecan nuts are not only a favorite for humans but also for wildlife, including squirrels and birds. The trees provide important habitat and food resources for a variety of animals and are an economically significant crop in many regions.



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
