  • Patent number: PP5911
    Abstract: A new and distinct variety of pecan tree distinguished by its resistance to cold weather and its ability to produce a high yield nut crop farther north, i.e. as far north as Nevada, Mo., and more consistently than any southern variety, the fruit ripening in midseason all at the same time and being exceptionally easy to harvest. This new pecan tree is resistant to pecan weevils and scab disease prevalent in other varieties in the same orchard, and because of its open center growth with widely branching limbs, there is good air circulation between the leaves which materially reduces the incidents of mildew or fungus diseases. The growth rate of this tree is unusually rapid with nut production occurring four years after being grafted. The nuts generally run about fifty-five to the pound and the cracking percentage in approximately fifty-five to sixty percent.
