Early Pecan History:

      The pecan is indigenous to North America, especially adapted to growth in Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, and in Alabama to the Tombigbee River.

      The discovery of the pecan belongs to the American Indians.  They called them “Pacans”, an Indian word designating all nuts with a shell that had to be cracked with a stone.  Early Settlers thought that pecans could be propagated only by planting seed. However, in 1846 a Louisiana farm was successful in grafting 16 trees.  Through this process of budding and grafting, farmers were able to cultivate pecans on a commercial basis to meet a growing national demand; and over the years, the number of cultivated varieties increased substantially.
