I'm pretty sure it's a pure pecan. It is a grafted tree and the woman who had the house before us would never have planted a nut tree for landscaping. She left a legacy of many fruit trees and perennial vegetables of which some even survived the realtor's yard man for several years.

>I have a pecan that has inedible nuts.  The husks never release 
from the nuts and the nuts are very bitter.  
You have a hican, in this case a bitternut pecan 
cross.  What a pity.  Some occur naturally, some are sold as 
landscaping trees.   Donna
