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.

2016 Pecan Year

Share:

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Today, I sold a majority of my 2016 pecan crop. This was a short year for me. I was not able to participate in it completely. In preparation for the sale, each pecan passed thru my Meyers blower which removed the pecans which had not completely developed. They then passed into the Myers sizer which sorted each nut by size and placed them in their appropriate burlap bag. This process, although it is good, it is not perfect, some imperfect pecans get thru from blower to sizer. This was pointed out to me by the buyer. The price was reduced when he found the imperfect pecans. You know, that is the way life goes. We work really hard to do good, striving for the perfect life. But, try as we might, to weed out the flaws in life some still slip by. I find that I judge myself harshly when this happens. I hope for your sake, dear reader, that you are not judgmental when you find flaws in your shell.

Wishing you the best,
Randy
