Here's the low down on both trees: Choctaw is a good yard tree because of its beautiful foliage, scab resistance and high yields of large, high-quality pecans. Unfortunately, Choctaw requires the very best soil and management; otherwise, it will fail. Nuts/lb - 38. The nut is egg shaped.

Pawnee is a new, extremely early-ripening variety. It is a medium-size pecan with good kernel quality. It appears to have a natural resistance to aphids, which are a leading pecan pest. Nuts/lb - 50. The nuts are elongated.

If space is an issue, Pawnee is the smaller of the two.

Best wishes with your new trees!
