Before we take a look at how the pecan tree is grown, let's examine what the pecan nut is. Pecans can come by many names. Some of those; They are Cyprus walnut, pecan walnut, beach walnut, American walnut, pecan walnut. The most important features that distinguish the pecan walnut from other walnuts are its high internal efficiency, its ability to be grown with less cost, its rich nutritional value, its longer storage time and its easy cracking by hand. Pecan walnut is also known for its flavor and richness in content. In addition, pecan nuts are produced in our country. In our country, it is produced in large numbers in the coastal parts of our Mediterranean and Aegean provinces and very high yields can be obtained.

So how are pecans grown? How to care?

Pecan walnut is not much different from other walnut species in terms of cultivation. If you have grown walnuts before, it is unlikely that you will have much difficulty in this type of walnut. Pecan walnut trees provide long-term benefits. There are two different flowers on the Pecan Walnut tree. These are male and female flowers. The maturation times of these flowers differ from each other. For this reason, another point to be considered is that it will be a great convenience for you to buy the varieties of these two flowers that mature in the same period, regardless of gender. It would be more logical to choose the species in which male and female flowers mature at the same time. Because it will be easier for you to do damage collectively while harvesting. Beautiful,

If you are considering mass planting, you should investigate whether the seedlings can take root in the soil before taking care of pecans. For this, it is useful to have an analysis on the pH value of your soil beforehand. Otherwise, your commercial breakthrough in this field may end in disappointment before it even starts. Today, the economic value of pecan seedlings is between 30-35 TL. Since the seedlings that are planted cannot be harvested immediately, they are grown for investment purposes as they must be waited for at least 8-16 years.

The care of the pecan walnut is similar to the normal walnut tree. It is important to keep the soil moist, hoeing and removing weeds, especially during the irrigation season. Since the trunk of the pecan walnut tree has a crisp structure, it must be grown in a way that it can be protected against hard and sharp winds. In addition, there should not be a big gap between the day and night difference so that its development can continue properly. Suitable ambient temperature should be +31 C for daytime and +21 C for night.

So, how should the irrigation process of the pecan seedlings be done?

Pecan seedlings should be watered regularly and the first 2 years are very important for its development. In addition, pecan seedlings grown in healthy soils can be attributed as pocket friendly in terms of economy by providing a great advantage to the grower in terms of additional expenses such as drug costs.
