For those of you who have pecan trees - Did anyone get a crop this year? I bet we didn't get but about 70 pounds off of 10 trees.

Gary,
I only a have a couple of small pecan trees. No matter how much the trees produce, we never get any. The squirrels always get them before they are ripe. Just hoping when they are larger, they will out produce the squirrels. I have a neighbor that sits in his back yard where he has a large pecan tree and with a BB gun removes large numbers of the varmints and they still clean him out. He does get some but nothing like he would without the squirrels.

I own about 10 mature trees and there is not a single nut. Some years they produce a bumper crop.

I made very few pecans this year. Last year was light, but not this bad.

We generally get a good many, not a lot last year and less this year.  Squirrels got all but a couple of handfuls this year.

10,
I will tell him but I doubt if he will take you up on it. He enjoyed the target practice.

Gary,
I discovered 2 wild pecan trees on my property when were building a deck in the woods.
The nuts are rounder than the ones my uncle brought me from Mobile.  Not quite as tasty either.  I picked up a grocery paper bag full, could have picked up many more.  If anyone knows anything about these midwest pecans and how to prepare them let me know.  They are sitting in my garage now.

Joe, around here we refer to them as "seed" trees. I have a couple that I know is seed trees. Nothing at all wrong with the nut, just not the same looking as the parent tree. My experience has taught me the smaller the better tasting.
