More About Carya illinoinensis 'Major':

The original 'Major' pecan grew on the delta of the Green River at the Ohio River, near Henderson, Kentucky.



'Major' is a heavy early pollen producer, and will set crops on 'Greenriver' and 'Posey' cultivars, which will in turn pollinate most of 'Major''s female blooms. In orchards of over 10 trees, a very late pollinator, such as 'Lattus', should be added.
