These deliciously sweet and diminutive pecans took us completely by surprise. While many "gourmet nuts" are jumbo, each of these baby pecans is just slightly bigger than a penny. That's because these are natural pecans, from organically grown trees. Most pecans are grown from commercial hybrids, grafted to other trees, producing larger pecans. These are from the same species of trees native to North America, producing the same nuts harvested by Native Americans generations before Europeans came over. Each nut is a perfect, sweet taste of pecan perfection. Trust us – we've eaten our way through a few bags here at igourmet.com and haven't come across a bitter one yet!Organic Missouri Pecans grow naturally in the rich river bottom soils of Missouri, in the northernmost region of pecan production. Although smaller than pecans grown in the south, the unique sweetness and higher oil content of these pecans result in extremely flavorful nutmeats preferred by many. Eat them straight out of hand, or use in pies, muffins, or as a topping for salads.
