New Mexico Pecans


"There are about 20 species of hickory in the eastern part of North America to Mexico and one in China. Among the most promising of these for the nuts they bear are the pignut, the shellbark hickory, the shagbark hickory, and the pecan, best nut of all."

-William H. Chandler, pomologist, 1951
