Pecan, raw, 500 g

Price: 21.99лв.

Pecan (Carya illinoinensis) is a type of nut. Traditional food for the Indians, who most often consumed it in the form of a drink, which today we would call nut milk (pecans crushed in a mortar, mixed with water). In the 16th century, pecans were brought to Europe by Spanish colonizers. Unlike the walnut known in our country, this one has a smooth shell with closed "seams", the nut itself is more elongated and flattened in appearance, sweeter in taste and higher in oil.
