This is a grower selection from eastern Georgia that was put into testing by Dr. Ray Worley.
'Kicklighter #1' produces an interesting tree, but a mediocre nut. Tree form is very upright with a strong central leader, very similar to an ungrafted seedling. This cultivar is extremely slow to come into bearing, and is a consistent bearer of mediocre quality nuts. Disease and insect resistance has been good. 'Kicklighter #1' has never been available commercially and I see no reason that should change.
