Planting Pros Recommend:

If you've always wanted to grow a pecan tree, but were afraid that you lived too far north and your cold winter freezes would kill off your harvest, you will be happy to hear about the Pawnee Pecan Tree (Carya illinoinensis 'Pawnee')!

All spring and summer, you'll be grateful for the large leaves and the cooling shade they provide your home and garden. In the fall you will get loads of the largest and sweetest pecans you've ever seen. The thin shells make these big nuts easy to crack - and even easier to eat and enjoy!

Growing further north than most others, Pawnee handles winter temps up to zone 6. We hear reports of people getting huge fall harvests in Rhode Island, Michigan, and Washington!

Planting and Application:

Pawnee makes a fantastic shade tree for a small yard, but boy, it packs a big harvest into a little space! Cooling bill reducing and home-value boosting legacy trees like these always are a favorite way of adding food sustainability and wildlife habitat to your landscape! Set a seating area beneath the shade and enjoy watering garden beds less as they find relief from the summer heat.

In the fall you will get loads of the largest and sweetest pecans you've ever seen. The thin shells make these big nuts easy to crack - and even easier to eat and enjoy! Commercial growers love Pawnee Pecans because they produce nuts earlier than other trees. You and your wildlife will be grateful for the bounty of healthy, delicious and versatile nuts for recipes, baking and candy-making.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

These Pecan trees are scab resistant and can withstand a lot of water better than other varieties! Best in a full sun location with ample water while establishing, they won't need much fussing over or care and maintenance afterward. Provide a good layer of mulch to insulate the large root system and water only in times of drought.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Moisture To Establish
  • Mulch Well, Prune When Dormant
  • Scab Resistant
  • Cold Hardy
