Pecan Trees - Cape Fear (Type 1)Carya illinoinensis
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-9
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 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 would by agian
The trees arrived in wonderful packaging! Unpacked the tree shipping carton, took the tree from the container and of the four pecan trees ordered from Plant Me Green, these two were the least root bound. However, instead of planting these container trees into the ground, I have planted the trees in a fifteen gallon fabric pots, with a quality potting medium, and hopefully giving the trees' roots a little grow room will encourage enough growth for successful placement in my yard in about a year.
I cannot wait until I have pecans.
The trees I received were healthy and packaged so well. So proud of my trees.
The tree arrived half dead, battered and we planted it, it has since died.
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!

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.
