Production & Sourcing
The process of growing pecans involves planting and nurturing pecan trees, which take several years to mature before bearing fruit. Once mature, the trees produce clusters of pecans encased in a green husk. When the nuts are ripe, the husks split open, revealing the shell-encased pecans. Harvesters collect the pecans, remove the husks, and dry the nuts to lower their moisture content. After drying, the pecans are cracked open to extract the edible kernels inside.
