pecan such as Major. The Burton
and Burlington hican cultivars are
self-fertile and very well suited for
I don't think he knows what Hican cultivar he has. But, Let's just say it is a pollen-sterile hican , that was pollinated by one of the many pecan trees in South Missouri. I'm not even sure any of this makes sense, but what are my chances of growing one of these hicans from seed?
