Released by the USDA-ARS in 2011. Lipan originated from a controlled cross of Cheyenne and Pawnee in Brownwood, Texas. Excellent scab disease resistance, with medium susceptibility to yellow and black aphids. It has a high nut quality and high yield potential. Medium early nut maturity. Appears to be regular in its yield, increasing yields with increasing age with alternate bearing. Kernels are cream to golden in color with open, non trapping dorsal groves and rounded dorsal ridge. The nut is oblong elliptic with a slightly pointed apex and rounded base (44 nuts/lb) with a 55% kernel. The Lipan is protandrous in blooming (early pollen shedding)
Note: Pecan Trees cannot be shipped to Arizona or California.
