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!

Many thanks to Ginger Parker of Orangeburg for sharing this photo.

Hi, Carolyn! Meggett, where the Pecan Orchard is located, is about 180 miles south of South of the Border. We hope this helps!
