    Nice.

    My Grandma had a huge pecan tree at the old home place. One year it would lay the ground two inches deep in pecans. As big as your thumb pecans.

    The following year no more than a handful, not big enough to bend over for.

    It is nothing like a handful of pecans.

    These are nice .You can put a couple in your hand Slim and squeeze a little and they will crack.This was one of the traits I was looking for.The few I have cracked have been full so far which is also good.Nice taste also.

    I used to own a home in a old pecan grove in Mount Pleasant SC. My yard had 4 huge pecan tree's. One strain was paper shell. The other was a tuffer shell. I believe if memory serves me correctly, they produce "Biannual" every other year. Just thought mention that...

    These are some Elliots and IMO best tasting Pecan on the planet.It takes them longer to produce but worth the wait.

    I never knew it was on schedule.

    It was more of "yep this year" or "nope, next year".

    It is nothing like a handful of pecans right off the ground.

    And nothing like them out of the grocery store either, you would think they were made of gold. LOL

    Yes they are very pricey. I have to say that when these trees get big man oh man the make a mess.. Lol. Don't park a car , boat ECT As the leaves drip a sap that's hard to get of even a windshield of a car. I let my niebors come and pic bags full. Some like Mrs Bunny would be kind enough to bring me back a homemade pecan pie ! Others would sell them at the flea market for like 6 bucks for a small bag.. Memorys...Lol. Good to chat with you Gentlemen

    Nice, Bama. I have some what I'm pretty sure to be pecan trees but the squirrels get to all of them before they're ready enough to pick.
