The U.S. produces about 80 percent of the world's pecan crop. Before a shelled pecan is ready to be sold, it must first be cleaned, sized, sterilized, cracked and finally, shelled.
The butter pecan is a very soft crumbly cookie containing pecan – a soft nut. The interplay of sweet and salty flavours makes it so popular.
Texas adopted the pecan tree as its state tree in 1919.
