How's it going? I have been buying pecan trees from the Missouri
Department of Conservation for 4 or 5 years now. They are Carya
and that is all the information the usually give on the seedlings I
order. They also had a bundle of "certified" seedlings once or twice,
and have always had certified black walnuts as well [Juglans nigra], with
a variety bundle of black walnuts with different names attached, such as
Thomas [not this year], Sparrow, Emma Kay and Kwik Krop. The "certified"
seedlings are from exceptionally strong and healthy trees, but there is
no guarantee that they are necessarily better. The regular seedlings
come in a bundle of 25 for $7 and the "certified" are $18 for a bundle of
These may not be quite as hardy as plants from Iowa, but should
definitely be hardier than pecans grown in Georgia. And they are
available every year. They start selling them about November 15 until
January or so. Delivery can be chosen for March, April or May.
