Hardy Pecan Tree

Exceptionally Cold Tolerant

  • Grows as far north as Zone 5
  • Produces good-sized, thin-shelled nuts
  • Grows 50-70 ft. tall
  • Doubles as a shade tree
  • Lustrous, dark green foliage
Did you think pecans were only a Southern delicacy? Think again! You can enjoy the buttery taste of pecans as far north as Zone 5. This majestic beauty will grow to 70 ft. at maturity and its lustrous dark green foliage will provide ample shade. Plant two trees to ensure pollination.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

I'm gardening elsewhere.
