Demand is up but panicked pecan growers continue in-shell selling frenzy as buyers with cash can basically name their price, while the market is flooded with in-shell pecans from both the US and Mexico. The sell of has gotten so bad, even shellers are saying stop.
The US Pecan Growers Council along with the American Pecan Council both track and report the movement of pecans around the world. This is done for a wide variety of reasons; however, one reason is to identify healthy export markets as well as identify opportunities for other export markets that might be a good fit for the pecan.
We wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving, and would like to thank everyone that helps make PECAN REPORT possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the farmers affected by the flooding in Texas and the Hurricane in the Southeast US…
The American Pecan Council has organized a “Pecan-A-Thon” where they will have celebrity host Wendi McLendon-Covey along with food bloggers hosting an online variety show where they will display new and traditional ways of using American Pecans in dishes as well crafts.
