Elliot is a variety of pecans that produces a very high quality nut, but often does not produce until it is more than 10-15 years old. Be sure to select a variety that is known to produce well in a particular locale, because a distance of fifty to one hundred miles can make a big difference in whether the selection is right for a given site. Fertilize pecan trees in late winter through early spring. Pecans can have a host of plant pests, so be careful in variety selection. Never plant pecan trees in areas where the sap will drip on patios, buildings, automobiles, and other surfaces. Best suited as a lawn specimen in full sunlight.
