    My pecan tree puts on lots of pecans, but the meat of the pecans are all dried up and black inside the shells. I'm sure it's in need of type of nutrients. Any Ideas? Will anything help fruit production?
    Thanks

    How long did you wait to pick them after they had fallen?

    Could be number of things, lack of water is one of them. Maybe if you had better data input to go off of?

    It produced lots of good pecans years ago. Nothing has changed. In fact I have 3 pecan trees doing the same thing in different locations.
    What other data are you looking for?

    Well some pictures of the trees and the nuts for starters lol.....imagine your speaking to a dr over the phone he’s not gonna have anything to go off of if you give him or her what equates to nothing.

    Troubleshooting any problem properly takes as much info as possible.

    Like with oaks black areas of the bark can mean a chit load of things....

    I do plan to take some pics after the pecans have matured and posting them. The trees look healthy and they put on a lot of new growth every year.

    I found my camera. Sorry the quality is not so great.
    This is tree #1 overall size.

    New cluster of pecans just starting out.

    Notice the bright green new growth and healthy green leaves.

    All the clusters on all 3 trees look the same

    May be a zinc deficiency.

    Perhaps but the leaves aren't showing that "almost looks like glyphosate damage" look.

    Perhaps an insect that gets into the pecans and eats from inside the husk?
