Approximately 80% of all the pecans consumed around the world are either grown or processed in the United States (the bulk of Mexico’s production is shipped to, processed, and sold by the US). The remaining 10% are grown in South Africa and Australia, with minimal production occurring in China, Peru, Chile and Argentina. In the US, these special buttery nuts are produced in 16 southern states from California to North Carolina, as well as Hawaii.
