The pecan, being the only tree nut native to North America is America’s Nut. But it’s not enjoyed just here. The pecans popularity as a food and snack ingredient is only rising. That’s thanks to the hard efforts of America’s pecan farmers, recognizing the true value of the pecan and pushing it further than just our borders. Now, bulk pecans wholesalers like SNRA Commodities, are distributing pecans globally, most notably to China, where the Chinese have taken up a great love of the pecan, despite never having them until the late 1990’s!
