Pecan Orchard – Meggett, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | Pecan Orchard
The name “pecan” comes from the Native American word used to describe “all nuts requiring a stone to break.” Pecans have been harvested in South Carolina since the late 1700s, when colonists used the nut as an item of commerce. They have since become a true Southern delicacy. South Carolina pecans are enjoyed year-round and used in some of our favorite sweets such as pralines and pecan pie!
Pecan Orchard Add Info and More Photos
The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Pecan Orchard, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
