Most cold tolerant pecan!
Pecan lovers rejoice! Oconee pecan will give you large crops of very tasty, fancy pecans all the way to zone 5 where most pecans would just shiver the nights away!
Have you always wanted to have a pecan tree in your yard, but felt like you might be a little too far north for any real success? Well, don’t worry about it anymore. Oconee is the tree for you.
The Oconee Pecan is an impressive tree that will give you bushels of delectable nuts starting as soon as its 5th year.
Oconee is a big tree, like most pecans are. It can grow to a whopping 100 feet tall so plant it where you mean it!
Since it starts producing very young you can expect many years of big harvests every October. It produces a lot of nuts – 48 nuts per pound on average. (40 – 50 is the accepted industry average.) And these aren’t just any nuts, these are some of the easiest shelling pecans around. People say that you get more intact halves from these ‘papershell’ nuts than from most other pecans.
Oconee was introduced in 1989 - a good year for music, hair, clothes and MTV as well as pecans! (Ok, that first part is debatable, but it was a really good year for pecans.)
