Carya pecan seeds, Pecan nuts, Nuts tree seeds, Pecan tree (lat. Carya illinoinensis).
A species of woody plants of the nut family (Juglandaceae). Deciduous tree reaches 25-40 m in height, with a trunk up to 2-2.5 m in diameter, developing a tent-shaped crown when growing freely. The bark is thick, deeply cracked, stratified into plates. The branches are gray or gray-brown, young with yellow-brown lentils. The shoots are densely pubescent.
The terminal buds are pointed-ovate, lateral ovate, 6-7 mm long, pubescent and glandular with opposite scales. The leaves are 30-50 cm long from 11-17 leaflets, sessile or on a petiole 5-6 mm long, elongated-lanceolate, with a rounded or broadly wedge-shaped, somewhat uneven base and sharp apex, 10-12 cm long and 2.5-7 cm wide.
The nut is oblong-ovate or ellipsoidal, almost cylindrical, 2.5-5 cm long, shiny, dark brown with irregular dark brown spots, sometimes with a tip at the top, with a brittle shell and a paper-like partition. The seed is in a reddish-brown thin shell, with 2 whole cotyledons. Pecans are fatter than many other nuts.
The tree is capable of bearing fruit for 300 years. The harvest usually ripens in the second half of October, but nuts are harvested until April.
