There's no comparison to 'new crop', or freshly harvested Georgia pecans. Natural (unsalted) pecans will be available along with in-shell pecans at our trucks. And if that doesn’t satisfy your pecan craving, try visiting our peach/pecan grower’s website pearsonfarm.com. There you’ll find some incredibly delicious pecan choices to indulge in. From chocolate covered to praline coated and everything in between, they are a real treat. All are available to order online through Pearson Farms. And take it from us, you won’t regret it. Enjoy!
The rich, nutty taste of Georgia pecans can enhance the flavor of any dish. But more than just a savory sensation, pecans provide essential nutrients like oleic acid, which can help lower "bad" LDL cholesterol levels. Pecans are also rich in vitamin E, thiamin, magnesium, and copper, and are a good source of fiber.
Pecans are perishable because of their high oil content and they must be stored properly to maintain good quality.
TO KEEP YOUR PECANS FRESH ALL YEAR:
Shelled pecans need to be either refrigerated in airtight containers for up to nine months, or frozen in zipper-locked freezer bags for up to two years. Pecans can be frozen and refrozen for at least two years without loss of flavor or texture.
