About the Sumner Pecan Tree

A productive Type II pecan tree for nut growers!

A seedling from the University of Georgia Pecan Breeding program, Sumner is a suspected offspring of ‘Schley’. This pecan variety produces moderately large nuts (about 54 nuts per pound) of good eating quality. The paper-shell nuts are easy to crack. Harvest time is late October or early November. Just in time for pecan pie!

A heavy-bearer, Sumner produces huge crops and can benefit from thinning some years. It has shown great resistance to scab, making it a preferred pecan variety for commercial growers. Sumner doesn’t mind the cold. All it needs is sun, well-drained soil, and space. These trees can grow large, providing shade and shelter.

When planning to add pecan trees to your yard or orchard, both Type I and Type II varieties need to be included to ensure proper pollination. Sumner is a Type II cultivar.

Add the Sumner Pecan tree to your property for shade and a bountiful harvest of delicious nuts!
