Interesting Facts About Pecan Trees
  • Pecan trees are native to Mexico and the southern areas of the United States.  Similar climatic and environmental conditions found in Australia have made the crop increasingly popular to farm in Australia.  However, Australia has one key advantage over America in that the Australian pecan industry is largely disease free. This means that pecans can be grown without the use of pesticides in Australia.
