About the Hark Pecan Tree

The Hark Pecan Tree, celebrated for its scab resistance and exceptional nut quality, is a remarkable addition to any garden. This variety is known for its slightly rounded nuts with thin shells and light-colored meat, averaging about 7.35 grams per nut with an impressive 56% kernel content.

What sets the Hark Pecan apart is its thick husks that securely hold the nuts until after a hard freeze, ensuring a timely and convenient harvest. The trees themselves are striking, featuring a shaggy bark that not only adds character but also provides protection against wind damage.

In the spring, they grace the garden with greenish-yellow catkins nestled among their long foliage, which transforms into large, fan-like leaves in the warmer months. Come fall, your patience is rewarded with a bountiful harvest of sweet pecans, perfect for a variety of culinary delights, including pies and other delectable treats.

How to Grow the Hark Pecan Tree

Cultivating the Hark Pecan Tree can be a rewarding endeavor for both seasoned gardeners and novices alike. This scab-resistant variety is known for its hardiness and its ability to thrive in diverse climates. To maximize the potential of your Hark Pecan tree, it is essential to consider its preferred growing conditions and pollinator requirements. Hark Pecan trees are type 1 pollinators, enhancing their productivity through cross-pollination. See recommendations below.

With cold hardiness suited for zones 5-9 and a mature height ranging from 50 to 70 feet, these trees require full sun exposure and should be spaced 25-30 feet apart, making them a versatile choice for many landscapes.

Planted from a seedling tree discovered in Alexis, IL, the Hark Pecan boasts northern pecan orchard origins, with possible parentage from the Majoy variety. This tree is particularly attractive for its protandrous flowering habit, meaning that it produces male flowers before female flowers, enhancing its chances of successful pollination.

With its delightful pecans and easy-going nature, the Hark Pecan Tree can be a valuable asset to your garden, offering shade in the summer, striking foliage in the spring, and a delectable autumn harvest.
