This listing is for 16 ounces (one full pound) of shelled Burkett pecan nuts in the form of halves, pieces, and bits. These nuts are perfect for baking, cooking, and snacking.

Westerns versus Burketts

The Western Shleys are a popular, common variety that look and taste the way you traditionally think of as pecans looking and tasting. We sell these in a mix of halves and pieces. (Please contact us if you are interested in Western Shley "bits," perfect for use as "chopped pecans" with little to no extra labor on your part. If they are still in supply, a pound will cost $9 and we can create a reserved listing for you).

The Burketts are a more rare variety that are prized as "table nuts" (read: snacks). They have a rounder shape and tend to have a richer taste. Normally the Burketts would be more expensive because the yield per tree is considerably less than that for the Westerns but this batch came back from shelling with far fewer "halves" and we are including the bits.

We have seven glorious, 40-year-old producing pecan trees on our southern New Mexico property. We do not use pesticides on our crops. All irrigation is from Rio Grande River water, our own well water, and what little rain we may be blessed with here in the High Chihuahuan Desert. The last photo in the listing shows one of the four Burkett trees in our little orchard.

Once shelled, our pecans are stored in bulk and/or 1 pound bags in a dedicated freezer, unlike store-bought nuts which often sit in warehouses and then on shelves for months. Once your order is received, we remove only the nuts for your order from the freezer and then label and package them for mailing the next day.

Your nuts will be packaged in a one-gallon ziploc freezer bag before being placed in a small flat rate USPS Priority box for mailing. We recommend that you store your pecans in your freezer or refrigerator.

One pound orders will be mailed in a small flat rate Priority box. Two pound orders will be mailed in a medium rate Priority box. If you order 3 or more pounds, we will be able to ship in a medium ($11) or large ($15) flat rate Priority box and will be able to refund excess shipping.

As a special thank you to our customers, we include a copy of our special candied pecan recipe with each order. Warning: they are completely addictive!
