A Bit of History

Native Americans made much use of the high-energy, easy-to-store pecan, native to North America. Later, European arrivals used it in various foods. In the mid-1800s, Antoine, an enslaved gardener in Louisiana, first determined how to graft a particularly hardy pecan tree onto others, making pecan propagation possible. Today, the popularity of the pecan in the U.S. is second to only the peanut – which is not actually a nut at all.
