Description

The Stuart Pecan tree is the best all-around pecan tree. It yields 40-50 nuts per pound, and the nuts are large and easy to crack open because of their thin and fragile shell.  Inside, the kernel is plump and firm-textured with a rich flavor. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. The Stuart is a Type-2 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. It is hardy in Zones 6-10 and can be planted in full sun or partial shade. The soil should be deep, moist, and well-drained.

USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

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.
