Comments: a seedling selection that is relatively large and quality of meat is high. Produces a high quality nut. Subject to a number of insect and disease pests as are most pecans. Nuts are seldom produced in any quantity under seven to ten years of tree age. Autumn color can be quite good on pecans. Do no plant pecans trees where the sap will drip on surfaces, cars, buildings and outdoor living areas. Litter can be a problem under old trees that shed branches and twigs.
