T. lyonii is considered to be a white truffle, but is very different from the truffles found in Europe. It is a unique fungus with a texture and flavor of its own. It should be noted, however, that truffles can be mistaken for other Fungi, so it is essential that harvesters carefully study truffles before consuming them. Truffle Pecans are perfect for any homeowner interested in trying the earthy flavor of the truffle, while still receiving the delicious nuts of the Pecan tree. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. To learn more about these dual-purpose trees, visit the University of Florida Fact Sheet.
Combination orders: Orders containing a mix of bare root plants and potted plants will all ship together. If you have questions about shipping please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
Bare root orders only: Bare root trees have to be dormant in order to be shipped. We will begin shipping directly after they are harvested. If everything goes according to schedule, bare root shipping will begin the last week in January.
We currently cannot ship to the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or US territories. We cannot ship trees internationally.
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.

I was extremely excited about receiving my truffle pecan trees. The first order arrived with one tree broken and the other tree significantly withered and dry. Plant Me Green was quick and easy to respond to my damaged tree claim. They promptly sent a new tree. This tree was delivered two days after the expected delivery date. Which means it must have been sitting in a hot truck or warehouse in the box. This tree is larger and should have been beautiful but also arrived significantly withered. I am optimistic that it will survive but it's going to loose most of its leaves, only to have the very top still green. I have experienced issues when using FedEx before. Possibly Plant Me Green should try using another shipping method to cover these losses.
I bought 2 of these Pecan Truffle trees to plant in my food forest. Did an unboxing of them for my youtube channel. The trees are in great shape, about 3 feet tall with green wood (not dead!). Can't wait to plant them and watch them grow, and start harvesting pecans and truffles in the next few years.
Shipping and delivery went very well. It was a gift for my daughter. She said the tree was in pretty good shape on it's arrival. It is now in the ground waiting for spring.
5* very good
Plants appeared in good condition. I’m hopeful they were successful inoculated, but only time will tell.
