I have four pecan trees in my back yard that produces a pecan that people brag about. The pecans could not be improved in any way. The pecans is what a person could call "perfect".

My father grafted these pecan trees about 50 years ago. As I recall he ordered the grafts from the "BASS PECAN TREE" I think was in MISSISSIPPI.

"BASS PECANS" or no-longer "listed" as a pecan.

Could someone please tell me something about this pecan.

I will collect many grafts in the next few days and try to graft other trees, to perserve the type of pecan.

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR RESPONSES

Would a person be wise to collect grafts from the "bass pecan trees" and attempt to graft baby pecan trees with the grafts.

First, I have limited experience with pecan and grafting in general.
You may wish to follow the steps outlined in the Link, to graft your own trees.
Or, perhaps you can find a local propagation nursery who would take on the job, depending upon how many trees you want to produce.
Sometimes there are graft incompatibilities.

Here are some more sites with good info.

If you want to produce more of these plants have you considered "layering" them?? Could be an easy way to go, and, I believe they should come out true to type. Just a thought.
James.

I live in a pecan or river bottom, and have many different types of pecans falling from my trees after spraying them this year. I would like to identify the many types of pecans.....and perhaps graff a few of the natives' this winter. Where can I find pictures of the different types, and graffing info?
