Pecan nuts is a winter fruit which is yearly harvested during the months of May until June.

Careful recordkeeping from the onset of procurement, cracking, shelling, storing stock in a cold room, enables Karoo Pekans to attain information which is used to constantly better processes as well as by giving nut producers valuable feedback of their product.
