The pecan nut is native to North America, where 95% of the global pecan crop is grown in the Sun Belt, ensuring the perfect climatic conditions for growing pecans. Native Americans used the pecan trees along migration routes as a major food source in the central, Eastern and river valley of Mexico in the United States.
