Pecan Time

 
Posted by Picasa


This is the time of year that the pecans start falling from their trees--in my neighborhood anyway! The area where I live used to be an old pecan plantation and many of the pecan trees are still growing and producing pecans. I took this picture of one that fell from a tree located in front of my church. It still has the outer shell on it. It's not a good idea to park under these trees during this time of year, unless you want little dings on the roof of your car!

I don't know pecan, its a sweet fruit?
Maybe I know it with another name, anyway I'm curious if there are pecans here in europe.
Happy weekend dear Lois!

Neat!! We used to have Walnut trees. Don't want to park anywhere near them when the nuts fall. MB

I did a little search on pecan, but even in portuguese the name means nothing to me... As it comes from Mexico, maybe I've seen the tree there...

I noticed the chestnut trees around here lately. You have to watch out for spiked surprises falling from those.

Yum yum Lois! I would love to have one of those in my yard.

As a kid went off into the nearby woods to hunt pecan nuts. You get your fingers stained brown from the outer shell...let them dry a while and good eating. Nowadays buy then in the store.

Is that why your country is famous for Pecan Pies? ah ... maybe you should show me how its tree looks like too! Just curious! Thanks Lois.

We had a pecan tree in our yard when we lived in Dallas many years ago. We enjoyed the pecans very much.

In fact, I'm nuts about them!

No pecan trees here, sadly.
