Technical Abstract: 'Lipan' is a new pecan [Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh.) K. Koch] cultivar released by the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) July 22, 2011. 'Lipan' was released because of its high nut quality, high yield potential, medium-early nut maturity, scab disease (Fusicladium effusum G. Winter) resistance, and excellent tree strength. 'Lipan' should be adapted to all pecan growing areas of the world except the extreme northern U.S. Pecans from this cultivar can be sold in-shell or shelled to produce a large proportion of halves and large pieces. 'Lipan' is the 29th cultivar released from this breeding program, and as with all other ARS pecan cultivars, it is not patented.
