Pecan Trees - Gafford (Type 1) #5 Pot
The Gafford pecan is one of the best for a low-maintenance tree, as it requires very little help to fight disease and insects. It produces a moderate quality nut with bright kernels with occasional speckling. Nuts are medium-sized, and harvest is mid-season. It has excellent resistance to scab and foliage pests. It is one of the most pest-free selections we have ever evaluated. Yields have been good to excessive. To maintain quality and reduce alternate bearing, crop thinning will be required.
The tree is a Type-1 pollinator and will need a Type-2 pecan tree such as the Cherryle, Lakota, Kiowa, Sunmer or Zinner. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. The Gafford is hardy in Zones 7-9 and should be planted in full sun or partial shade with deep, moist, well-drained soil.
USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9
