Pecan trees

Asked November 10, 2019, 5:48 PM EST

Is there a pecan tree breed/variety you can recommend for the area? I want to buy a tree that had a good possibility of growing for my dad who has bought acreage in shelby county over the last few years.

Shelby County Kentucky

Hello,

There are several different varieties that will grow well in Kentucky. I am attaching a link below to a publication that should provide some variety options and information on how to grow nut trees. The Pecan section begins on page 8. When selecting a Pecan variety, disease and pest resistance should be a high priority.
