Elliot pecan packs tons of taste in a small package. This pecan tree was originated in Santa Rosa County, Florida, by H. Elliott.
Despite the small nut size, market acceptance for this cultivar continues to grow due to its beautiful kernel color and uniquely outstanding taste.
The Elliot is best suited for planting in warmer climates with mild winters.
The Elliot has proven again and again its resistance to pecan scab and other leaf diseases. It is very drought resistant and holds its leaves late into fall.
In early October, the pecans mature and the teardrop shaped nuts will easily shell out to reveal plump, light golden kernels. Yielding around 77 nuts per pound and 51% kernel, Elliot is a moderate producer of excellent quality pecans. Cross-pollinate with a Type I variety such as the Caddo or Pawnee.
