The Caddo is a highly productive pecan tree, yielding about 60 nuts per pound. The pecans ripen in mid season and have excellent shelling characteristics so you can get right to enjoying them! They are oblong elliptical to oblong shaped nuts. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. The tree is moderately scab resistant and is a Type-1 pollinator, or a protandrous, meaning that its pollen sheds prior to stigma receptivity. Because of this, the Caddo should be pollinated with Type Two pecan trees. The Caddo thrives in Zones 6-10. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

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.

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.

Good condition

Received order and.plants.were in good condition. They appear to be first year plants as the grafting tape was still on them. Put them in the ground 2/20 so we will see once the weather warms how well they do.
