Potential New Cultivar?

    The pecan on the left is Kanza. The pecan on the right comes from a tree in our pecan breeding block. This seedling was one of the first in the block to start bearing and looks to be scab resistant. Ripening date is early like Kanza. We are going to collect some samples this week and will display them at the harvest tour and the Annual Meeting. I'm excited about the possibilities for some good cultivars to come out of this block.
