Storage and Stratification Recommendations for Pecan and Shagbark Hickory

Pecan and shagbark hickory nuts should be stored at 3° C and 5-percent seed moisture. Fresh and stored pecans should be stratified for 30 to 60 days. Fresh shag bark hickory nuts and those stored up to 2 years need 90 to 120 days of stratification; stratification should be reduced to 60 days for nuts stored over 2 years.
