Nut development: 3 Sept 2013
The calender says its September, but nut development looks more like August. Even after the return of summer temperatures (lows in the 70's, highs in the 90's) pecan devlopment is very late this year.
last week's post you'll find that Osage had just started to lay down kernel tissue. This week much of the interior of the nut is filled with kernel with only a few air pockets remaining. For Osage, the kernel filling period is not over but is nearing an end.
