The Mandan Pecan tree cultivar features the best qualities of all the pecan varieties! Mandan was released in 2009 by the USDA, this cultivar offers high early nut quality, high yield potential, early nut maturity, excellent scab and disease resistance,  and enormous tree strength. What more could you ask for from a pecan tree?

The Carya illinoinensis Mandan produces roughly 49 nuts per pound, with one of the highest kernel percentages at 57%. The pecan tree is a consistent producer of large nuts all through its maturation.

Mandan nuts are cream to golden brown and are extremely large for being a northern pecan tree. They are tasty nuts perfect for eating fresh off the tree or for baking pecan pie!

The papershell pecan trees are easy to crack and enjoy right off the tree! Pecans are sometimes susceptible to pests and diseases. Do you part in preventing these on your trees!

The Mandan’s strong branch angles are great for a distinctive look in your landscape. This is a Type-1 pollinator and requires a Type-2 like Elliot Pecan, Kiowa Pecan, or Kanza Pecan to produce nuts.

Mandan Tree Planting & Pecan Tree Care

The best time of year to plant pecans is in late winter to early spring. A layer of mulch at the top of the root ball and tree trunk will help retain moisture. This nut tree needs a lot of water the first few years to establish a strong root system.

Mandan prefers moist, well-drained soil and sunlight. You can perform a soil test to test what nutrients are lacking and for soil pH. We suggest doing this while the pecan is still a young tree. Common nutrient problems include zinc deficiency. You can amend the soil with zinc sulfate. 

 Young pecan trees need several gallons of water per day. This will continue until the pecan established into a mature tree.

Buy pecan trees for their nut production and shade tree opportunities. Pick your planting site first before choosing your pecan.

Grow this fast growing tree in USDA growing zones 6-9. This pecan tree can get up to 70-100 feet tall at maturity with a 70 foot branch spread.

Shipping information

Once your Mandan Pecan Tree | Type 1 Pollinator order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order and the destination it is being shipped. Please see the chart on the Shipping Info page to get an exact amount. We frequently have a free shipping promotion to help you save!



The Mandan Pecan needs a location is full sun where it will have great clearance for it’s large mature size to remain in full sun and with good airflow. Soil should be well drained and not soggy, but regular watering is essential for the life and productivity of any Pecan Tree, and especially important for a newly planted tree.

Pecans have a very deep root system and in order to be sufficiently hydrated, water should be given slowly and plentifully to achieve moisture at the necessary depth. Pests can be a concern for any Pecan variety so a pesticide, especially one that targets Aphids, should be kept on hand to apply when needed.


Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Mandan Pecan Tree, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
