Description

The Desirable is a favorite pecan tree because it is a regular and heavy pecan producer. Its pecans are a favorite because they are large, round, well-shaped, and abundantly filled with an excellent flavor. It yields an average of 44 nuts per pound.  These characteristics, as well as its well-branched quality, make the Desirable Pecan tree a great pick for home or commercial planting. It's a Type-1 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-Two pecan trees. At maturity, it can reach a height between 75-100 feet with a 50-75 foot spread. 

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.
