During its potential 150-year life, each American pecan tree produces a nut that is unique in variety, making for millions of distinctive pecan nut flavors. Texas leads the nation in pecan production with an estimated 600,000 acres of trees consisting of 30,000,000 individual trees. Pecans are highly nutritious as they are sodium-free and contain upwards of 19 vitamins and minerals. As a nut with a high protein content, (18%) the pecan is listed on the USDA Food Guide pyramid as a nourishing alternative protein for people on a plant-based diet. Although not explicitly endangered, the American Native Pecan is at risk and in need of revitalization.
