This seedling cultivar from Tift County, GA, was discovered by and named for Walter E. Sumner. The Sumner is a prolific tree that looks wonderful in the yard since it keeps its abundant foliage late into the fall.
It is a strong tree that requires little or no training to grow straight. Although the harvest is later in the year, the huge sums of pecans are well worth the wait.
The Sumner can produce heavy loads of pecans as a young tree due to its precocious nature.
The harvests stay consistent and plentiful throughout its maturity. This variety has very good resistance to pecan scab and many other leaf diseases.
49% kernel with 56 nuts per pound. Cross-pollinate with a Type I variety such as the Pawnee, Creek or Cape Fear.
