Description

The Elliot is a prolific pecan tree, yielding an abundance (around 82 per pound) of excellent quality, flavorful pecans.  The nuts are thin shelled with a plump kernel. The Elliot is also scab resistant. It is a Type-2, or protogynous, pollinator, meaning that its stigma is receptive prior to pollen shedding. Because of this, the Elliot should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. The Elliot is hardy in Zones 6-9 and can be planted in full sun or partial shade. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. Plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. 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.

Doing great!

I bought this pecan tree along with the Pawnee. They have both been in the ground for about two weeks and looking good. They came packaged great and thank goodness, because our Fedex is not always the most careful with some packages. If they can survive Fedex, they will do just fine- lol
