Osage Pecan was released by the USDA in Brownsville Texas in 1989. It is the result of a cross between the cultivars Major and Evers. Nuts are small for commercial harvest but acceptible for home use and kernel quality is excellent. It was released for high kernel quality and early ripening for northern areas. Shuck split is around September 21.
Pollination is type 1 nut size is 80 per pound with 51% kernel. Would be a good pollinator for Kanza. Since it is one of the first pecans to ripen and the shells are so thin, birds can be a problem with this variety.
