We’re nuts for our pecan tree nursery.
In addition to our two patented trees, ’Eclipse’ and ’Excel,’
the tree nursery at Clough Pecan Company sells bare-root
seedlings of several other popular pecan tree varieties.
You can also talk to us about custom grafting your trees.
It is best to transplant bare-root trees while they are dormant, between December and March. To successfully grow pecan trees, it is important to water them regularly for the first two to three years. While you do not want to put fertilizer in the planting hole when transplanting – fertilizer can burn the roots, damaging or even killing the tree – you do want to apply fertilizer (about one pound of 5-10-5) in June after planting, distributing it in a 25-square-foot area around the tree, but not within 12 inches of the tree’s trunk. The following year, apply one pound of 10-10-10 fertilizer in March and in June, but again, keep the fertilizer away from the trunk.

’Cape Fear’ is an early-bearing pecan tree that produces well-filled nuts with attractive golden kernels as a young tree. ’Cape Fear’ yields about 52-62 nuts per pound. The nuts are flavorful and resemble ’Stuart’ nuts in size and shape but with a superior cracking quality. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet.

’Caddo’ is a highly productive pecan tree, yielding about 67 nuts per pound. Ripening in mid season, the nuts are oblong elliptical to oblong shaped with excellent shelling characteristics. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. The tree is moderately scab resistant and is a Type-1 pollinator, meaning that its pollen sheds prior to stigma receptivity, so it should be pollinated with Type 2 pecan trees. ’Caddo’ thrives in USDA Zones 6-10.
Creek – USDA Variety
