Hican seedlings are the result of a cross between hickory (Carya spp.) and pecan trees (Carya illinoinensis). They combine the desirable traits of both parent species, including the hardiness of hickory trees and the delicious nuts of pecan trees. Hican trees are known for their adaptability to a wide range of climates, making them a popular choice for orchards and home gardens. The nuts produced by hican trees are typically sweet and flavorful, making them a valuable addition for those looking to harvest tasty and nutritious nuts from their landscape.
