This tree is a cross between the shagbark hickory and the American pecan. It produces very tasty nuts somewhere between the pecan and the good-sized hickory nut. The shell of the walnut is thinner than that of the oval hickory, which gives it an advantage. It grows well in southern Quebec, tolerates very cold temperatures and reaches a good size. It is recommended for multiple planting in nut orchards and for ornamental to a lesser extent if you have a good size plot of land and want a small production of nuts. Are you interested in the tree? Consult its technical sheet.

Note: with our experiments, we noticed that Hicans are very resistant to cold (-30°C) with perfect survival on different trees following the winters of 2014 and 2015. These winters were in the coldest in the last 50 years for northeastern North America. Very good cultivation potential for walnut production in southern Quebec.
