Growing Hickory and Hican for Nut Production
I wanted to open up a thread here for people interested in growing Hickory and Hicans for nut production. I feel that many nut enthusiast may be uniformed about Hickory nut production and their pecan hybrid cousin, the hican. I want to open this up as a topical discussion that others can glean from and hopefully want to gear up to graft and grow these delicious outdoor edibles that are in my opinion the best tasting nuts. Feel free to ask questions and yes there are selective cultivars that are far more superior to what you may find in the wild. Hickory and Hicans have been in cultivation for near 100 years but somewhere over the span of time their cultivation has been dwindling by a thread. Here's a picture of some different cultivars.
