Perfect For Pecan Pie!

Can’t you smell it? That delicious, warm pecan pie scent coming from your grandma’s kitchen at Thanksgiving. If you grew up anywhere in the southeast, then you know what we’re talking about. As good as your grandma’s pie recipe is, though, it gets even better when it’s made from fresh pecans you picked from your own trees!

Elliot Pecan Tree (Carya illinoinensis 'Elliott') is the most widely grown specialty pecan tree in the south and is easily recognized by its smooth mottled shell and distinctive teardrop shape.

First discovered in the early 1900’s as a seedling in Henry Elliot’s front yard in a small town in Florida, this tree grew quickly in popularity. The buttery, hickory flavor of these nuts makes them popular to serve as hors d’oeuvres or to use in specialty snacks and desserts.

Commercial growers love Elliot Pecans because they are drought tolerant, scab resistant and have very consistent nut size and production. You can be sure to get a good harvest of great nuts from Elliot every year, but don’t take our word for it – buy one today and see for yourself!

* Beautiful shade tree
* Loads of specialty pecans
* Reliable producer
* Great buttery hickory flavor
