brison, figure of south africa production

The established pecan production areas were in what was called the Transvaal and Natal provinces, the northeastern and eastern side of South Africa. Potential areas were outlined around the Orange River Valley and East Cape Province.

From Dr. Fred R. Brison’s 1974 book Pecan Culture, this figure exhibits the established pecan producing areas and potential production areas in South Africa at the time of printing. These potential areas are now the heart of the country’s pecan production.
