Cape Fear Pecan Tree: Harvest the Legacy of the South

About the Fruit

The Cape Fear Pecan is a treasure of the southern orchards, known for its large, plump nuts with a high-quality, buttery flavor that stands out in any dish. This delectable variety is perfect for baking, making homemade pecan butter, or simply enjoying fresh from the shell. The nuts are encased in a thin shell, making them easier to crack and a favorite among pecan enthusiasts for their exceptional taste and texture.

What to Know About the Tree

The Cape Fear Pecan Tree is a majestic addition to any landscape, showcasing its grandeur with a tall, spreading canopy that provides ample shade. This deciduous tree flaunts lush, green foliage that turns to golden hues in the fall before shedding its leaves. It’s not only visually striking but also hardy and disease-resistant, making it an excellent choice for growers seeking both beauty and reliability. Its deep taproot ensures a strong foundation while the extensive canopy reaches up to 75 feet at maturity, becoming an elegant fixture in your garden for years to come.

Harvest Season

Anticipation for the Cape Fear Pecan harvest begins as the summer wanes and continues into the heart of autumn. This tree generously yields its nuts typically in early October, inviting you to partake in the time-honored tradition of gathering and shelling pecans as the weather cools. The harvest season not only provides a bountiful supply of delicious nuts but also a reason to celebrate the changing seasons with a taste of the South’s natural abundance.

Fruitscape™ with Pecan Trees

Experience the abundant rewards of Fruitscaping™ with our magnificent Pecan Trees. These impressive trees not only provide a majestic presence in your landscape but also offer a bountiful harvest of delicious, buttery pecans.

Pecan Trees are known for their stately appearance, featuring a tall, spreading canopy with beautiful feather-like foliage that provides ample shade during the hot summer months. In the fall, the leaves transform into a stunning display of warm hues, creating a picturesque landscape.

Beyond their ornamental value, Pecan Trees offer a delectable reward. They produce an abundance of pecans, renowned for their rich flavor and versatile use in both sweet and savory dishes. Whether enjoyed raw, roasted, or incorporated into your favorite recipes, pecans add a delightful crunch and nutty sweetness to your culinary creations.

Thriving in full sun, Pecan Trees prefer well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (pH 6.0-7.0). They require deep, fertile soil that retains moisture but drains well, allowing their extensive root systems to access nutrients and water effectively. Proper soil preparation and regular watering are key to ensuring healthy growth and abundant nut production.

Pecan Trees are long-lived and can provide generations of harvests when properly cared for. They are relatively low-maintenance trees but may benefit from occasional pruning to maintain a strong framework and promote optimal fruit production.

Embark on a Fruitscape™ adventure with Pecan Trees and savor the rewards of homegrown pecans. Whether you dream of creating delicious pecan pies, adding a nutty crunch to your salads, or simply enjoying the beauty of these majestic trees, Pecan Trees will be a cherished addition to your landscape and a source of culinary delight for years to come.

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
