Texas-Size Pecan

The huge nut on the Courthouse lawn is a popular place for taking photos. Made of concrete but looking quite realistic, it honors a major local industry. Crops can reach up to 3 million pounds of pecans, making this county one of the nation's leading producers. Guadalupe County growers helped to pioneer the now-popular nut, which Spanish explorers encountered in this area hundreds of years ago. Some of the earliest pecan orchards were planted in nearby river bottoms, and local specimens were used in upgrading cultivated varieties. The Guadalupe Valley Pecan Growers Association, founded here, is one of the oldest such groups in the state.
