Pecan nut trees are deciduous. In South Africa, the crop is well adapted to virtually any area with short, cold winters; and long, very hot summers with relatively low rainfall and humidity.
They have male and female flowers, which do not bloom at the same time. A single tree cannot pollinate itself. Therefore, two trees of different varieties are required. The best time to plant your pecan nut trees is in winter, when they are dormant. They have a taproot and grow very quickly. The nuts have a particularly high protein content and are rich in vitamins, carbohydrates and nut oil.
Walnut trees are large deciduous trees that grow well and quickly. They have male and female flowers on one tree. The male flowers’ pollen settles onto the female ones to pollinate them and produce nuts.
Walnuts can be eaten on their own as extremely nutritious snacks, sprinkled over salads, included in smoothies, or used in baking really delicious tarts and cakes. They are particularly high in fat, and also have good amounts of carbohydrates, vitamin E, copper, folic acid, protein, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. They are good for brain and heart health, and they help to prevent cancer.
