Pecan Nut & Tree Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Do you ship chocolates year round?

A. No, chocolates are not available for shipment after April, since flavor starts to degrade and the pecans get stale and chewy.  Since it's still hot at our facilities in October, chocolate and other heat-sensitive items may require additional packaging to arrive in good condition.  Please see our warm weather shipping policy for specific details.

Q. Do you ship to a P.O. Box?

A. No. We cannot ship to a PO Box, we will need physical address to ship your order.

Q. Do you ship to Military Address?

A. Yes. When using military address, delivery is made by the U.S. Postal Service only.  However we cannot guarantee shipping to A.P.O addresses as we cannot track the shipment of these packages/ We support our soldiers in the armed forces but have found that A.P.O. shipping is not reliable for timely delivery of packages.

Q. How to store pecans?

A. Pecans, either shelled or unshelled, if kept in an air tight container, will last in refrigeration for up to 9 months and in the freezer for up to 2 years. If pecans are left out in an unsealed bag, they will keep their taste for about a month and, if in a sealed bag, a couple of months. All of this depends on the temperature and humidity to which the pecans are exposed. You can freeze pecans. They will last 24-30 months in the freezer. Pecans can be re-frozen numerous times without loss of quality.
