Pecan trees are native to the United States and are found growing naturally nowhere else in the world. The pecan is a member of the hickory family and closely related to the walnut.
The USA produces about eighty percent of the world's pecans.
Rather like cashews, pecans are graded against a count per lb (454g) and generally speaking the grades most common to Europe and the UK are whole Junior Mammoth Halves or Jumbo halves. The common broken grades are large, medium and small pieces as classified by sieve sizes in the USDA specifications.
