Pecan – Grown from Riverside Variety Seed.  These trees are prolific producers. Often planted amongst other grafted trees. 450mm Tall including Super Tube minimum.

PECANS are Part of a Bunya + English Oak + Pecan Forest being developed at Janahn Forest – 100 Acres East of Jimbour – Australia. These 3 trees all have the potential to live for hundreds of years. They are ultra deep tap rooted. They are readily integrated with grazing animals.

Some of this water is also returned to the Great Artesian Basin.
