Thank you for your business this year!

Pecans

FIELD FRESH PECAN TREES


We strive to supply our customers with trees which are freshly dug. Pecan roots are very susceptible to damage from drying out. Trees are carefully packed with moisture retaining material around the roots to maintain a damp condition while in transit.

Pecan trees are a perishable product. The "livability" of field fresh pecan trees is much greater than trees which have been dug for weeks or months and are carelessly handled.

You will find us referring to western and eastern varieties in this catalog. Eastern varieties are resistant to leaf disease, thus are more able to grow in humid areas. These eastern varieties can be grown satisfactorily in the West. We do not recommend western varieties in the East because of leaf disease problems. For a rough boundary line for eastern and western varieties, draw a line from San Antonio through Ft. Worth to Tulsa.

• LD’s sidebars. This year I thought, after 28 years in the nursery business, it was my turn to give some opinions and observations as to varieties and practices. In agriculture, there are no definite answers or cures, and please understand, these observations are only opinions developed from feedback received over the past 28 years. It has been my thought that the knowledge of the tree business lays with the orchardist or full time gardener in your area, because there is no better teacher of ag cultures than experience or hindsight.
 

LAKOTA -(2) - Newest USDA release. A cross between Mahan and Major. Lakota is very resistant to scab disease with medium susceptibility to yellow and black aphids. Lakota has performed well in tests in northern production areas of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois. Bears quick and heavily. Kernel is cream to gold in color. Shells easily to full halves. Nut is oblong oval with and acute point and rounded base (59 nuts per lb.) and 62% kernel. Vigorous tree, upright growth habit. Wind resistant tree with strong limb angles. Lakota is an eastern variety and is fast becoming our number three best seller for commercial producers.


CHOCTAW -(2) - This variety is the result of a cross between the Mahan and Success varieties. This variety does well in practically all pecan growing areas. The nut is large and attractive, resembling the Stuart variety in shape. The hull is extra thin. The kernel, which consists of 58% of the total weight of the inshell nut, is very smooth, high in oil content, bright in color, and rich in flavor. The tree's upright habit of growth and good foliage makes it a good selection for yard plantings as well as commercial plantings. This variety is easy to shell. • The #1 yard tree for past 25 years.


PAWNEE -(1)- A cross of Mohawk and Starking Hardy Giant. The nuts have very early maturity which makes the Pawnee an attractive variety for the shorter growing seasons. The nuts have matured as early as Sept. 15th at Brownwood. Protandrous, pollen shed similar to Cheyenne. Eastern variety. • Because of its commercial popularity, we sell 4 to 1 Pawnee over any other variety.


DESIRABLE -(1) - Large nut, cracks easily. Heavy producer and bears early. Disease resistant. Popular eastern variety. • If you want a quality nut and beautiful tree, plant this one.


OCONEE -(1) - One of the newer releases from the U.S.D.A. Pecan Breeders. The Oconee is a Barton-Schley cross. Variety has good nut size (about 50 per pound), a 55% kernel and has good disease resistance. • Fast becoming one of our best sellers.


KANZA -(2)- One of the newest of the USDA pecan releases. Major - Shoshoni cross. Very scab resistant, very early maturing (Sept. 10) and late pollen shedding. Kanza should be an excellent variety for the northern pecan areas as well as the warmer areas. Shells easily (about 55% kernel, 72 nuts per pound). • Pawnee’s running mate because of early maturity and cross pollination. More popular every year, very scab resistant.


HOPI - (2) - The Hopi variety resulted from a cross made between Schley and McCulley. We have observed this variety for over 35 years in our orchard. It is usually the best quality nut produced on our farm. The Hopi is a medium producer, not as likely to over produce one year and skip the next. The Hopi should not be planted in areas subject to scab. An excellent variety for planting in Central Texas and West. Nut size is about 55 per pound with a kernel percentage of 58-60%. Has a bright kernel which keeps well. Good tree shape. • The only pecan T.E. (Babe) McG innis, a 55 year employee, would take home.


WACO - (1) - The newest of the controlled crosses from USDA. A Cheyenne-Sioux cross. There are about 53 nuts/lb., kernel yields Is about 56%. Kernels are cream to golden in color, and have a wide non trapping dorsal grooves. Early pollen shed. Matures mid-season. Recommended for western pecan area.

  WICHITA-(2)- This is a cross between the Halbert and the Mahan varieties. This pecan has an abundance of dark green foliage and is a consistent bearer of heavy, high quality nuts. We have seen as many as nine nuts in one cluster. The nuts are of medium size, about 60 normal nuts are required to make a pound. The nut is moderately elongated in shape, like the Schley. The nuts are usually very well filled. The Wichita is recommended in areas where western varieties do well. • The #1 money maker in the state overall.


SIOUX -(2) - A Schley-Carmichael cross. The Sioux kernel is considered the best in eye appeal, shape, taste and ease of shelling. Nuts are small, 60-80 per pound. Has produced well in Central Texas and westward. Can be successfully grown in eastern areas with a good fungicide program. • Of all the varieties offered, this is Mom’s favorite.


WESTERN -(1) - Long shaped nuts. Trees seem to stand late freezes better than most thin shelled pecans. Bears well. Same section as Burkett. • West Texas commercial variety.



CADDO -(1) - A small, football shaped nut with excellent kernel quality. This variety is becoming more and more popular each season in orchards and home plantings. Very disease resistant, vigorous, upright grower. Eastern variety. 60 nuts per pound, 57% kernel. • Another of Mom’s favorites.


CHEYENNE -(1)- This pecan resulted as a cross of the Clark and Odom varieties. The Cheyenne bears heavy and early after planting. The nuts are medium size (55-60 nuts per pound) and usually contain 57%-61% kernel. The kernels are relatively loose within the shell, making the Cheyenne nuts easy to shell with commercial machinery. The Cheyenne is protandrous in blooming (early pollen shedding) and is an excellent choice for pollinizing such varieties as Wichita. The variety is well tested in the Western area, and is also doing well in Eastern Regions. • Thin shell and high quality kernel.



NACONO -
(2)- One of the newest of the USDA pecan releases. A cross of the Cheyenne and Sioux varieties. Eastern variety. The Nacono has very high nut quality, scab resistance, and excellent tree strength. Nuts are suitable for inshell or shelling trade. Nut size is about 47 per pound and kernel percentage averages 56%. Upright tree growth. Mid-season maturity. • Well worth planting for nut quality and tree growth habits.


PODSEDNIK -(1) - The largest pecans we have observed. One sample required only 20 nuts to make a pound. The tree has strong structure and large leaves. Appears to be scab resistant. These are desirable characteristics for your yard trees. Pollen is shed slightly ahead of pistil receptivity. Kernel is well filled and has good color in younger trees. Matures in early November. Eastern variety. Recommended for TRIAL PLANTING ONLY. • Beautiful tree and something to talk about.



LIPAN -(2) - [1] Released by the USDA-ARS in 2011. Lipan originated from a controlled cross of Cheyenne and Pawnee in Brownwood, Texas. Excellent scab disease resistance, with medium susceptibility to yellow and black aphids. It has a high nut quality and high yield potential. Medium early nut maturity. Appears to be regular in its yield, increasing yields with increasing age with little alternate bearing. Kernels are cream to golden in color with open, non trapping dorsal groves and rounded dorsal ridge. The nut is oblong elliptic with a slightly pointed apex and rounded base [44 nuts/lb] with a 55% kernel.




(1) Indicates early pollen shedding, Protandrous.
(2) Indicates late pollen shedding. Protogynous.


This year we will have Kanza, Pawnee and Lakota available on northern rootstock. These varieties on northern rootstock would be more adapt to the northern edges of the pecan belt. Once you get into the northern states and above Kansas, pecans become a trial planting.
