Shuck Split Early in 2010

    Remember this past spring when everything seems to bloom at one time and we went from Winter to Spring in what seemed like a weeks time? When the early and consistently warm Spring jump started pecan budbreak and shoot development the nut development clock started early. Add above normal summer temperature and we find pecans ripening 10 days to 2 weeks early that normal. In addition, crop quality looks good. Most cultivars are well filled. Thing are looking good for a great 2010 harvest season.
