Kanza, was developed from a cross of ‘Major’ x ‘Shoshoni’. It is incredibly disease-resistant and is cold hardy. It was bred specifically for disease-resistance to pecan scab as well as other diseases and pests. At maturity it can reach a height between 70-100 feet and a spread of 60-80 feet. This grafted cultivar will bear in 5-7 years. Kanza ripens in mid to late October, producing a small, round nut similar to Elliot; 74 nuts per pound with 52% kernel. Kanza is a Type 2 pollinator. The best pollinator is a Pawnee. 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.

Kanza pecan

The trees were all securely packaged and were bigger and more robust looking than I expected. I'd give them a 5 star rating if I could see leaves, but it is still march!
