Finally, after a long hot summer, pecan season has arrived. It feels like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all in one. In fact, I will even throw in New Years. After two years of less than the best pecans, this year has real potential. Here it is October and I am still seeing as many as six nutlets in a pecan cluster. WOW!!!

Here at Abilene Pecan 449 E/South 11th we are starting our pecans prices at $0.60 per pound or more based on the size and condition of the pecan. If you have pecans to sell bring them to Abilene Pecan and let’s talk. 325-370-1022

We also do custom cracking of your pecans. Our Double Barrel Savage blower can’t be beat. Give me, Randy Billings, a call and let’s talk nuts. 325-370-1022

2018-2019 OFF TO A SLOW START

2018-2019 Pawnee Select Pecans available

The 2018-2019 pecan year has had a slow start.  This year the late October raines combined with last years bumper crop, has negatively impacted the pecans in Taylor County.  Thus far, a few smaller pecans have come in.  However, the quality and quantity leaves much to be desired.  With the addition  of  weather related crop production from other pecan states such as Georgia and Mississippi combined with the Trump Tariffs on China the result is a soft pecan market.  Here at Abilene Pecan, I find myself continuously searching for high quality, larger pecans, at reasonable prices. This years crop has made achieving that goal a challenge.  As always, it is the goal of Abilene Pecan to provide quality service at reasonable  prices for all your pecan needs. We would remind all that if you have pecans to sell please call 325-370-1022  or come by 449 E/South 11th. One additional note: I have purchased a limited amount of Pawnee pecans.  I have shelled and vacuum sealed these pecans.  They are now available for purchase.

2017-18 Draws to a Close

2017-18 was a good year for pecans in Taylor County. We will no long be purchasing pecans for this year, however cracking/shelling remains available.  

If you have an interest in having your pecans cracked call 325-370-1022 for more information. As always I appreciate your business.

Thank You

2017 is a very good year for Wichita Pecans. The full bodied flavor and large size of this pecan makes it a favorite for home bakers.

I have a few 2017 Wichita Pecans shelled and ready for purchase. They will add that special crunch to your holiday treats. The pieces are $9 and halves are $10 per pound. Remember, these golden nuggets are this years crop. They are vacuum sealed to preserve freshness. They are ready for the freezer or immediate use. These beauties won’t last long, Call 325-370-1022 to order yours before they are gone.

If you have pecans to sell, call Randy Billings 325-370-1022. You will be glad you did. I don’t want to buy all the pecans just yours.

If you have your pecans you want shelled, I have a Savage cracker with the capacity to crack up to 400 nuts per minute. I can adjust the crack pressure to yield the maximum number of pecan halves. My Dial sheller is the top of the line and does a good job of separating the nuts into two halves and don’t forget my Meyers Blower to remove those loose shells. This is a great setup and for only $1 per pound it is a bargain. My goal is to provide you with a high percentage of halves.
