I have one papershell that makes giant nuts. Love shelling them, I can get the meat out whole and they are beautiful. We planted it 30 years ago so I don't remember what variety it is.. but I believe it was an indian named one..


For those who understand, need no explanation, ....for those who don't, none will do

Mohawk is pretty big.

The biggest variety in Texas is Podsednik but they have some issues with how well they fill out.

Here is a pic of a board of every variety in the state they have you make at the Pecan Short Course @ TAMU. They are in descending order by size. I can try to take a better pic of the board if this isn't clear enough (It seems pretty dark).
