Pawnee Pecan Tree
For a beautiful shade tree that also produces delicious nuts and is easy to grow in almost any condition, no matter your level of gardening experience, choose our hardy pecan tree. Pecans are not just for the south. With this hardy variety you get a tree that is low-maintenance and that can resist the colder temperatures of many northern states. From zones 6 through 9, you can enjoy growing a beautiful pecan tree and its tasty annual harvest.
Our hardy pecan tree grows to about 20 or 30 feet tall and between 15 and 25 feet wide, so if you are looking for a shade tree that won't overwhelm your small backyard, this is the one for you. With a sunny spot in your yard, this tree will thrive with little effort on your part. It is hardy in the cold and even resists most diseases and pests.
The nut that you'll harvest from your new hardy pecan tree each fall is among the largest and sweetest of all pecan varieties. It also has a thinner shell, so getting to these delicious nuts is easy. Nuts are some of the healthiest foods you can eat, and few are tastier than the pecan. Enjoy the benefit of healthy unsaturated fats while also getting a significant amount of antioxidants like vitamin E, as well as minerals like copper, magnesium, manganese and zinc.
Pecans are tasty, nutritious and versatile. You can enjoy them fresh and raw, straight from the tree, and add them to a number of dishes. Pecans taste great in salads, cereal, oatmeal, savory dishes, sauces, spreads and just about any baked good. Few snacks are tastier than a simple roasted pecan with a little sugar.
If growing pecans in your backyard sounds like a great idea but intimidates you, don't worry; you don't need to be a tree or gardening expert to easily grow our hardy pecan. The secret is that we graft mature trees to hardy root stock. Unlike trees from other nurseries, which may be grown from seed, our trees are disease-resistant, pest-resistant, mature and ready to produce nuts, and professionally pruned. All you need to do with your new hardy pecan tree is put it in the ground and give it a little water. You won't have to do much to maintain it, and over the years it will grow and give you shade, beautiful color and an abundant annual harvest of pecans.
