  • Pecan Seeds

    Pecan seeds are a good source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, and phosphorus.

    Pecan seeds are relatively easy to grow from seed. However, it is important to stratify the seeds before planting. Stratification is a process that simulates the natural winter dormancy period that pecan seeds need to germinate.

    Pecan seeds will typically germinate in 6-8 weeks. Once the seedlings have emerged, you will need to water them regularly and fertilize them every few months.

    With a little care and patience, you can grow your own pecan trees from seed.
