Authors: M.W. Smith, J.A. Anderson and B.S. Parker
A severe freeze during November 1991 injured
pecan trees [Carya illinoensis (Wangenh.) C.
Koch]. The severity of the damage was related
to cultivar and crop load.
Cultivars that had
structural damage or were killed included
'Barton,' 'Graking,' 'Mahan,' 'Mohawk' and
USDA 41-19-20. 'Dodd,' 'Hayes,' 'Hirschi,' 'Nuggett,'
'Peruque,' 'Gormely,' USDA 55-11-11,
USDA 64-11-17 and OK 753 were not injured by
the fall freeze.
In 'Mohawk,' freeze damage was
curvilinearly related to crop load.
