Carya illinoinensis, commonly called hardy pecan, is a large deciduous lowland tree that is the largest of the hickories. It typically grows 75-100’ (infrequently to 150’) tall with a large rounded spreading crown. Trunks mature to 2-4’ in diameter. It is native to the midwest and parts of the mid Atlantic region.  Pecan features medium green, odd-pinnate, compound leaves, with each leaf having 9-17 pointed leaflets. Leaflets range from 2-7” long. Leaves mature to yellow green in summer, eventually turning yellow brown in fall.

Best grown in humusy, rich, moist, well-drained soils in full sun. If grown for nut production, plant at least two trees for best cross-pollination. Nut production can be sparse in the northern part of its growing range, particularly when spring is late and summer is cool. Expect nut production within 3 years of planting. Pollinated by wind.
