Description

Cape Fear Pecan trees yield about 52-62 nuts per pound. The nuts are flavorful and resemble Stuart nuts in size and shape but possess a superior cracking quality. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. The tree is a Type-1, or protandrous, pollinator, meaning its pollen sheds prior to stigma receptivity. Because of this, Cape Fears should be pollinated with Type 2 pecan trees. Cape Fear is hardy in Zones 6-9. 

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

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.

The tree arrived half dead, battered and we planted it, it has since died.

William,

We are sorry to hear that you've been displeased with your purchase. This time of year is hard on the plants. We'd love an opportunity to correct this issue!

Thank you,

Damaged in shipment

The order was delayed several days by FedEx. When we finally took delivery the shipping box was damaged and our Cape Fear had an approximately 2 foot section broken off with splintering. The Kiowa and the Crabapple trees were shook up but not in pieces. Thanks to Plant Me Green we will have 3 news trees shipped in February.
