Pecan, Grape, and Fig Plants

Pecan tarts are very popular as a dessert item for Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday festivities. The nuts of the Cape Fear Pecan tree are well filled out with plump kernels, and the pecan kernels are covered with a thin papershell that is easy to shell, because the Cape Fear pecan shells out into perfect halves it is a very popular nut when toasted, salted or roasted and the aroma of the toasted pecans is very distinctive as well as the flavor. The Cape Fear Pecan Tree is especially recommended for growing and planting in South Texas where the trees bear at an early age with high yields. The Cape Fear pecan tree variety was recommended in 1990 for commercial plantings in AR, LA and MS.

This Cape Fear Pecan tree was planted at the Ponder Farm at the Tifton, Georgia Experimental Station test site and reached a production of 160 lbs when 15 years old. The Cape Fear Pecan tree has a high yield with strong disease resistance and strong limbs that are vigorous and exhibit an upright, open type growth, and the kernels are delicious with a high oil content pressed from consistent straw-yellow colored kernels. The Cape Fear papershell pecan tree is thought to be a good breeder and a good pollinator for other pecan cultivars. The tree produces a papershell pecan that easily shells out, mostly in halves.
