The Desirable Pecan cultivar thrives in humid climates, making it a prime tree selection for the hotter states, especially Florida. One of the most loved characteristics of the Desirable tree is that it produces large, well-filled nuts, setting the standard in the Southeast. According to commercial orchards, Desirable is a favorite because they are large and have good branching qualities.

The Desirable pecan tree boasts continuous production of high-quality crops year after year. It even has the tendency to thin its own crops, reducing the stress on the tree and low-quality production habits. For most Southern orchards, the Desirable is, well, the most desirable cultivar! Desirable pecans are a favorite pecan variety for the large, round, well-shaped nuts with excellent flavor.

The Desirable is a slower-yielding cultivar, and can take up to ten years before its first production. However, as the tree matures it exhibits higher yields. This is a Type-1 pollinator Pecan Tree and requires a Type 2 pecan tree to produce nuts. Some good options for cross-pollinators are Stuart, Sumner, or Zinner. According to the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the Desirable pecan is “one of the most valued cultivars as an established tree or in new plantings.”
