The Q&A Archives: pecans

Question: I have large pecan tree and the squirrels are eating the pecans and knocking a lot of them to the ground. Will the green pecans ripen off the tree? Thank you

Answer: Pecans do not necessarily ripen after falling, but they do cure and sweeten a little bit. They will not fill out once leaving the tree. So, maybe all is not lost. You may have to collect the pecans and check them individually.

Best wishes with your pecan tree!
