This is the fastest growing member in the hickory family able to produce even into central Michigan. Its ability to fill nuts in short seasons makes this hickory the ultra northern pecan. See our mid January newsletter for this great tree and other unique fruit and nut crops that are rich in flavor and high in nutrition. MID JANUARY NEWSLETTER
The Northern Pecan tree is one of the more widely distributed tree crop plants exchanged by indigenous cultures in North America long before Columbus arrived. The late flowering means no frost and their clean foliage means healthy trees. Our trees when put into our sandy dune soil put a deep tap root as well as side roots that extend two times that of the height of the tree. Drought has little effect on the northern pecan. It was a tree I planted that made a dramatic impact on my blank slate field thirty years ago.
