Bunch of nuts

Pecan shows are one of the best teaching tools available. They render a real service to the pecan industry. These shows help pecan growers grade and evaluate their standard varieties and the shows acquaint growers with new varieties and the numerous pecan hybrids being developed. In Meridian, the first Pecan Show organized by the Bosque County AgriLife Extension Office was held on Dec. 18 in the Memorial Library Building, to focus attention on the pecan – an important Texas export - and to help promote consumer interest in this product.
