2017 Regional Pecan Show Results

By Neal Alexander

The Central Region Pecan Show was held in Bell County on December 6th and 7th, 2017. There were 161 entries, representing 11 Texas counties in the Central, Central West and Southwest districts. Dr. Larry Stein acted as judge. Pecans of outstanding quality were seen in this regional competition, which we believe reflects on the educational efforts of Texas A&M AgriLife extension agents and specialists in Texas to provide resources, expertise and training on pecan production and management.

The top three places in each variety class will be held in frozen storage until the state show to be held at the Texas Pecan Growers Conference in San Marcos, July 15-18.
