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-Two pecan trees. Cape Fear is hardy in Zones 6-9. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. 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. 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. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
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.

Strong healthy young trees

My pecao trees were well packed and shipped just in time for planting. Their trunks were quite sturdy looking, the roots were plentiful and healthy, the buds of the saplings looked ready to leaf.

Great Trees

We received our 20 trees and had extremely bad wather and flooding for 8 days. But we finally opened the trees, put them in water and over 2 days got them all planted. The soaking water had a rooting compound mixed in and the trees are doing well. Should be a few more weeks before I can say how well.
