can you grow a Maramec pecan tree from seed?
Jerry on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's difficult, but you can. This is from the Center for Agroforestry: Pecan trees are easily grown from properly stratified nuts. To start your own trees, choose nuts that are medium sized and well filled. Nuts from early-maturing northern cultivars make good cold-hardy seedlings. Stratify nuts in moist sand by placing them in layers about 3 inches deep and holding them in a cool room or refrigerator (35o to 40oF) for 90 to 120 days. Be sure the nuts are kept moist throughout the stratification process to ensure uniform germination after planting. Plant stratified seeds in the spring after the danger of frost passes. Seedlings can be grown in a nursery row and transplanted the following year or planted directly in the final tree location. Homegrown seedlings require 2 to 3 years to grow large enough for grafting. Starting an orchard from seed has the same advantages and disadvantages as starting with seedlings.
