'Elliott' Seedling selection by H. Elliot, Milton, Santa Rosa County, FL. Original tree was 2.5 feet in diameter and making large crops of high quality nuts in 1912, when Elliot purchased the property where it stood. First propagated in 1919, with the establishment of Harlan Farms Nursery, Paxton, FL. Nut: ovate, with acute apex and rounded base; round in cross section; 67 nuts/lb, 53% kernel; kernels golden in color, with wide dorsal grooves and a deep basal cleft. Protogynous, with mid-season pollen shed and early pistillate receptivity. Early to leaf out in spring, making it (and its seedlings) susceptible to late spring freezes. Slow to bear, and not a heavy producer, but known for excellent quality nuts. Excellent scab resistance. Very susceptible to black aphid. Used as a seedstock in the southeast. Recommended (1990) in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS and SC.
