Version 2.77


The Pecan/Hickory tree is part of the genera Carya, a tree species producing pollen, which often induces hayfever, asthma and conjunctivitis in sensitized individuals. Pollen is produced in the Spring, which extends from April to June in the Northern hemisphere. The pollination occurs by the wind, is very allergenic, but it is large and does not travel far. In areas where the trees are cultivated commercially, heavy exposure to the pollen can cause allergy symptoms. Information is from website, accessed 2006 11 03. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.

The Pecan is a deciduous tree, usually 23 to 34m tall but sometimes growing to over 50m. The tree has a rather narrow crown and usually occurs in forests. Some Pecan trees are over 150 years old. They have compound leaves with lance-shaped leaflets. The bark is a pale gray or whitish brown, scaly, and deeply furrowed, and the twigs are hairy. The trees lose their leaves each year and bear sweet, edible nuts, deep brown in color, that range from 2.5 to 5cm in length. The Pecan is native to North America. The range of Pecan covers the warmer temperate zone and subtropical areas. It is very common in the South and Southeast of the USA, but is also planted far beyond this range. In the USA, Texas is the largest producer of Pecan nuts, and is second only to Georgia in the production of hybrid (orchard-grown) varieties. Pecan tree pollen is considered to be highly allergenic, resulting in allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis and asthma Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
