Pecan question
« on: September 19, 2020, 08:17:05 AM »
Spent a windy day before the hurricane picking up bags of pecans from under 2 massive pecan trees. Not sure what variety they are, but they are huge and probably 50-100 years old or older. How can I tell if they’re of the ‘paper shell’ varieties?
Naturally I won’t be eating any of these but propagating them all. Must they be stratified before germination?
Thanks

I guess they have to be stratified since pecans come from cooler slimates, dont quote me on that thought.
