The Stuart Pecan Tree is one of the most common cultivars of pecans grown in the southeastern United States, and even in the world. The trees are strong and upright, requiring less training and pruning compared to other cultivars. One of the limitations of the Stuart Pecan is that it may take 8-10 years for it to come of bearing age, from a 1 year tree. Stuart Pecan trees are a late-season pollinator, which is recommended to be planted with an early season pollinator. Nuts of the Stuart are medium sized, producing normally around 52 nuts per pound, with a thicker shell than some of the other papershell pecan varieties. Also, the Stuart pecan growing range can reach a little more northern than most other papershell pecan varieties.
