Pecan buds showing signs of growth
In normal years, cultivars with southern ancestry usually break bud before cultivars that have originated in the north. However, this year, it looks like budbreak is going to be unpredictable. Warren 346 is a far northern cultivar and it is breaking bud right along with Kanza and Greenriver. Lakota and Kanza share the same northern cultivar parent (Major) but Lakota is sightly ahead of Kanza.
