National Pecan Day

National Pecan Day, celebrated on April 14, pays homage to the pecan—a distinctly American nut with esteemed admirers such as founding fathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Whether featured as a salad garnish or enjoyed as a standalone snack, caramelized or roasted, sweet or savory, pecans consistently deliver captivating flavor and impressive nutrient density. Surprisingly, the United States is credited with 75% of the world's total pecan production.

This enjoyable holiday, initiated by the National Pecan Shellers Association in 1966, serves to recognize and honor the dedicated workforce responsible for cultivating pecans in America.
