You surely know Pecan Nuts (Carya illinoinensis) from fruit shelves or as baking ingredient but hardly anybody has ever picked a Pecan Nut from a tree by himself. But it is very easy: you just have to plant a tree in your garden. Even in our climate, the North American, fast-growing trees of the walnut family are reliably winter hardy. They need a sunny place with constandly moist and nutritious soil. The pinnate leaves of this deciduous tree are long and give shade to your garden. In autumn, they change colour into a mixture of yellow and orange. The self-fertile flowers are hanging catkins that unfold in late spring. Female and male flowers on one tree sometimes do not open at the same time, so it is best to grow a second variety for wind pollination in the vicinity. The nut- harvest is in late autumn: Each fruit is surrounded by a succulent,green skin that splits in four segments when the fruit is ripe and then releases the light-brown, darkly-striped, hard nutshell. Inside there are 2 nuts/ nut segments. Our plants are grafted Pecan Nuts and will already bear fruits in the first year!
