About Pecan nuts

Pecans are native to America, and grow enclosed in an oval shell. It is often mistaken for a walnut after the shell has been removed because the kernel inside shares the walnut’s trademark grooved surface. The Pecan has a sweet flavour that is distinctly full of body which is the result of its high levels of monosaturated oil – making it the fattiest of all nuts. It is popular in both savoury and sweet dishes, commonly used in the famous pecan pie.

Key Information

A Pecan Nut tree is considered to be of bearing age when it can normally be expected to produce a commercially significant quantity of pecans this can take anywhere from seven to ten years. The fruit bearing age is a influenced by factors including variety, rootstock, year planted, etc. Pecans are commonly grown in the USA but in recent years the optimal weather and soil conditions and ample supply of water in the Northern Cape province of South Africa has yielded a highly valued crop of Pecans. With South Africa situated in the Southern Hemisphere harvesting season is between May to end of August which compliments the American season of October to December making the nut available for a bigger part of the year.
