Pecans from Southwest Research Center for Sale

Representatives from the University of Missouri’s Southwest Research Center at Mt. Vernon (Lawrence County) will be selling fresh-harvested pecans from their research orchards during a special “Farm to Thanksgiving Market Sale” from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 26 at the Farmer’s Market of the Ozarks located inside Farmer’s Park at 4139 S Nature Center Way, Springfield, MO 65804.  MU representatives will also be giving out lots of free samples to entice buyers!  All proceeds support long-term research on pecans and other fruit and nut crops at MU’s Southwest Research Center.

These pecans are of exceptional quality (thanks to summer rains) and are absolutely delicious.  They are a mix of several premium northern pecan varieties, including Giles, Pawnee, Posey, Dooley, and Kanza.  Northern pecans are a bit smaller than southern pecans, but have superior flavor, a higher oil content, and superior health benefits.

Fresh, whole pecans will be packaged in 2-lb bags for $5 and 5-lb bags for $10.  They are easy to crack and clean at home with any ordinary nut cracker.
