Pecan pollination habit revealed at budbreak
During bud break you can already see clues to the flowering habit of any cultivar. The catkins of protandrous cultivars will be large and fat right at bud break. In contrast, the catkins on a protogynous cultivar at this time of year will be small and thin. One close up look at the photo and you can easily see the difference. Remember, you can click on any photo in this blog to get a larger image of that photo.
