Comments

Western Schley' is the most widely planted pecan in the southwestern region. 'Western Schley' produces a small, high-quality nut and is very productive in its home region. However, its small nut size and extreme susceptibility to scab make it unsuitable for use in the Southeast. Many years we lose the entire crop to scab even with a full spray program.
