The Elliot is a prolific pecan tree, yielding an abundance (around 82 per pound) of excellent quality, flavorful pecans. The nuts are thin shelled with a plump kernel. The Elliot is also scab resistant. It is a Type-2, or protogynous, pollinator, meaning that its stigma is receptive prior to pollen shedding. Because of this, the Elliot should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. The Elliot is hardy in Zones 6-9 and can be planted in full sun or partial shade. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. Plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Pecan trees need water and sun in order to thrive. Be sure to plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. During the tree's first growing season, be sure to water regularly, about a gallon of water a day, (though you do not need to water every day in order to accomplish this). Prune pecan trees in the winter, making sure to prune lower hanging branches to encourage upward and lateral growth.

Orchard Starter

I have 7 acre field in front of my home that I no longer use for farming. I pondered what to do with the field and finally decided that I would give my children and grandchildren a gift that they will enjoy for years to come and that was a field full of pecan trees and one day bushels of tasty pecans.

I came across an add where Plant Me Green was offering an orchard starter kit which I ordered. My trees (Elliot and Pawnee) arrived as promised for my zone and have been in ground since February of last year and are doing great. I have not regretted my choice on bit. The trees arrive in excellent condition save one which they promptly replaced. The only problem I have is that I need 4 more so here I am after more bare root trees. Two more each of the Elliot and Pawnees please!

Very happy with my purchase. GREAT TREES

Our trees arrived in a very timely manner, very well packaged, and very healthy. After two weeks of being planted, they both seem to be taking off very well. Plant Me Green sent step by step instructions with the trees that go into very good detail of how to plant as well as caring for them in the beginning stages of their lives and the future. I would highly recommend Plant Me Green and will surely return for any future needs.
