Pecan:

Scientific Name: Carya illinoiensis


Description: We have both trees and nuts for sale from the hardiest known pecan strain in the US. These trees were founded during the 1970s in Wisconsin and their nuts were distributed throughout the north through the Northern Nut Growers Association (NNGA), which my dad was a member of. Those nuts he planted have grown into 60 foot tall, beautiful shade trees that reliably bear a crop every year. We have aptly called this particular strain the Hardy Wisconsin Pecan. It takes about 10-15 years for a seedling to begin bearing fruit.

My dad has also written extensively about Wisconsin pecan and some of his other favorite nut trees here: http://www.magiclandfarms.com/store/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Wisconsin-Pecans1.pdf





Shellbark Hickory TreeShellbark Hickory:


Scientific name: Carya lacionosa


At the same time my dad planted the Hardy Wisconsin Pecans he also planted a grove of Shellbark hickories which also have grown into large, beautiful, 75ft tall shade trees that reliably produce nuts every year, very similar in flavor to the pecan. It takes about 10 years for a seedling to begin bearing fruit.




Butternut or White Walnut:


Scientific Name: Juglans cinerea


This is the hardiest of all nut trees, growing farther north than any other nut tree. They make nice shade trees, growing 40-60 feet tall. Unlike pecans, butternuts and other walnuts prefer rich, well-drained soils. It will take about 10 years from seed to begin bearing fruit.
