Cape Fear Pecan Pollination
Cape Fear Pecan Tree is a type-1 Pollinator and requires a type-2 to pollinate. The tree produces best with other pollinating varieties like Elliot Pecan, Mandan Pecan, Kanza Pecan, and Sumner Pecan cultivars. Cape Fear will typically ripen in the late October growing season like the other pecan varieties.
As this variety matures, pruning may be required to ensure nut quality remains high quality due to overproduction. The pollen sheds from late April to early May to begin nut production. This tree is known to help cross pollinate all the other pecan trees in your area.
This pecan tree variety can grow up to 60-80 feet tall with a 30-40 feet wide branch spread. Grow across the southern United States in full sun in USDA growing zones 6-9.
