about 12 years ago we bough a tree from a local nursery. This was a unusual because from what I understand is a very lately discovered somewhere in Central Texas. about 1980 or so. Tree name starts with P and spelled something like, "Ponsinut". Spelling could be anything like that. All I can remember is it sounded like that. Unusual in that it had very, very large nuts, 0ver 3 in by 1 in thick. Got my attention. Planted and it is a big tree now. Needs a pollinator so no nuts produced. Starts with little nuts but they don't complete.. Working on that. Planted some around. I cannot find anything about this type Pecan. Once years ago I did run across something about but didn't save and have not been able to find since. Wonder If anyone here might help. Thanks

I did a search of pecan cultivars. Is it Podsednik? That sounds closest to what you stated.

We have Northern Pecan (Carya illinoinensis 'Podsednik') listed in our database but no one has uploaded any photos as yet.

greene is correct, they need a pollinator.

Have planted Desirable for several years. they can make the winter but we have had so hot summers with long dry spells have not been able to water fast enough out in the field. Did get one to make it to now from last year though. crossed fingers.
I know one thing, forget bare root. money and effort down the drain. maybe start it and get it going in a container for a couple years.
