Thread: Pecan trees

  1. Pecan trees

    A video I put together for my site talking about pecan trees. Here in the south, pecan trees used to be planted all over the place. That way families could pick up the pecans and store them through the winter.

    And I'll tell you what, pecan pie is one of my all time favorites.

    Small world, I believe I was watching a video in the spring about storing different seeds that you made in your kitchen. I'm seed saver myself.

    Good video. In the North there were Chestnuts but they were wiped out by the blight. Chestnuts were valuable as hardwood too. Some people are planting black walnut which is extremely valuable. Will that grow in the South?

    Nice way to promote your website. I wish we had one of those pecan trees in our garden.
    Reminds me to create a video for our mango business

    Yes, black walnut will grow here in the south. My grandmother one next to her house.

    I have a huge Walnut tree in my backyard. I hate it, becuase it stunts my tomato plants. It has this toxin, called Juglone, that is released from its leafs and pretty every part of the tree. All plants in the solanaceae family are susceptible to it. (including things like tobacco , peppers, tomatoes etc.).


    So yeah if you have a walnut tree, dont grow a garden near it..

    Black walnut is extremely valuable. Loggers will come to cut one tree. I think that a large one can bring $2,000 or more. I'm not sure how fast that they grow. In these parts, cherry is the most valuable species. But it can take around 150 years to get a nice log. But a veneer log can be had in around 20.
