The shell markings and large size of Kiowa pecans make this a very attractive nut. These large pecans closely resemble Desirable pecans except for their thinner shell. The Kiowa tree is vigorous and yields 40-50 nuts per pound and reaches a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. It is slightly susceptible to scab. The Kiowa tree is a Type-2 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-One pollinators. It is hardy in Zones 7-10 and can be planted in full sun or partial shade with deep, moist, well-drained soil. USDA ZONES: 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.

Kiowa Pecan Tree

Tree was packaged well and tied to a stake. There were only a couple of small green leaves growing from the top and I broke one of them getting it out of the box. I was worried at first, but I could see were there were other places that were ready to sprout. I haven't planted it yet, but I put it outside and it is sprouting new leaves and growing rapidly. Will plant soon. I'm very happy with it.
