Storing Pecans
for Home Use


Pecans Pecans
Pecans purchased from us may be refrigerated or frozen in the bags or containers they are packaged in.

Storing pecans under refrigeration is the best way to retain the fresh color, aroma and flavor, as well as to prevent insect infestation.

Experiments show that while there is a slight loss in quality under refrigeration, pecans suffer no injury from freezing. After thawing, they may be held for weeks, if kept cold. Since pecans are low in moisture (4%) the unused pecans may be refrozen again and again without adverse effect on quality or texture.
