The Choctaw grows to maturity at an average rate and makes a wonderful yard tree because of its beautiful foliage. It has resistance to pecan scab and high yields of large, top-quality pecans. The nut from the Choctaw pecan tree has an egg shape to it as well as a thin shell structure which is great for shelling. At 58% kernel and 37 nuts per pound, the large, creamy, golden kernels of the Choctaw are just right for roasting. Choctaw should be cross-pollinated with a Type I pecan tree such as the Jackson, Oconee or Desirable. More information about planting and growing pecan trees is available from Bass.
