The Sumner Pecan tree is a great choice if you are looking for strong tree to provide high yields of delicious, home grown pecans!
The Sumner trees produce large-sized nuts that yield around 52 nuts per pound with 52% kernel and wonderful taste. This pecan cultivar is scab and disease resistant and is a great choice for backyard planting. This is a Type-2 pollinator and requires a Type-1 to produce nuts.
The Sumner features an upright habitat and prefers deep, moist, well-drained soil. Regular watering is a necessity during its first growing season to establish a strong root system, as well as minimal pruning done in the winter to encourage spring growth.
Sumner trees prefer full sun and have a fall harvest date. These trees were discovered in Tifton, Ga in 1932 by Walter Sumner. They have been gracing the southern United States with their quality paper shell nuts that are easy to crack open and enjoy immediately.
Grow this pecan variety in USDA growing zones 6-9. Its high quality pecan nuts mature in early October to late October. A slow release fertilizer at the top of the root ball during planting will help with root development the first year of planting.
Please note, we do not ship these trees bare root. They are rooted in a container with soil and have established tap roots.
