CALIANNA PECAN TREES
It took some real effort at the beginning of Calianna Pecan Farms to decide exactly what kind of pecans we wanted to grow for our customers. Would we try our luck with native pecans? Would we go for the biggest pecans? Is there one that tastes better than another? We ended up going back to our vision....Produce the best pecans for snackers, cooks, bakers, and candy-makers across the country.
Best Tasting: This was our first and foremost concern when we started this journey. We do our best to strive for pecans with a fresh, authentic taste. Calianna's pecans are packaged at the perfect time to produce a crisp, snappy pecan -- these pecans have not been stored in a warehouse since last season.
Best Looking: Calianna's pecans are healthy, full, and packaged with the customer in mind. Our large halves are packaged as complete halves and we take great care to get them to you that way; you should be able to take a majority of these and place them on top of that pecan pie for the rest of the family to pine over until it's time to cut into it. Take a picture of your creation, tag us, and share it on social media to brag about your baking skills! Our bags of pieces are for those bakers who don't want the trouble of cutting up those big, beautiful pecans for that family recipe, but still demand the best quality and taste.
OUR PECAN VARIETIES
Desirable: Thin-shelled, large, and easy to crack even by hand, these pecans have been a mainstay of southern pecan production for years. Many cooks and bakers love to use these for roasting and snacking. Harvests in mid October.
Oconee: One of our favorite large pecans at Calianna. A larger pecan that usually shells out extremely well resulting in good looks to go along with the great flavor. Harvests in early to mid October.
Sumner: Another pecan that has been around since the 1940's because of its consistent quality. A mid-sized pecan, these are usually the ones that folks look for around Christmas because they will be the freshest with a late October harvest.
Caddo: These aren’t the biggest pecans around, but we grow them because they are some of the best tasting you will find. High natural pecan oil content makes this variety so flavorful. They shell out well and harvest in early to mid October.
Elliot: These round-shaped pecans have become a choice selection among Louisiana growers. Like Caddo, they produce a slightly more oily meat that makes for excellent flavor. Harvests in early to mid October.
Nacono: One of our great tasting pecans that harvests in early October, just in time for the early Thanksgiving season. Thin-shelled, large, and flavorful.
Apalachee: While these pecans will not be winning any awards for size, they sure make up for it in taste. A great addition to the baker’s arsenal; they harvest in early October.
