representative of the same company Jamil Abdeim.

Related to the walnut, pecans are native to America. Sweet and rich, the pecan's distinct flavor and texture is the result of its high levels of monosaturated oil - in fact, it is the fattiest of all nuts. It goes well in both savory and sweet dishes.. Pecan trees grow also in the Crimea, Central Asia and the Caucasus. -0-
