The first documented evidence of nut consumption occurred around 7,000 BC, during the Stone Age.

Many varieties of pecan are alternate-bearing. This means that one year the tree will produce large quantities of nuts and the following year they will produce smaller harvests.

Pecan trees can live to over 200 years.

Pecans are the only tree nut that is truly native to the United States.

In 2018, New Mexico replaced Georgia as the top producing state for Pecans.
