'Mobile' (Nut photo) Seedling selection made by F. H. Lewis and I. P. Delmas from Bayou LaBatre, AL. Nut planted about 1887. First propagated by Lewis and Delmas about 1900. Introduced by Stone Nursery as Mobile in 1904. Nut: oblong with right angled apex and obtuse base; round in cross section; shell surface with ridges; 53 nuts/lb, 43% kernel; kernels wrinkled, with very broad, shallow dorsal grooves, and a prominent basal cleft. Protandrous, with mid-season pollen shed and pistillate receptivity. Resistant to scab. Produces a high percentage of very poor quality nuts early in the life of the tree. Considerable numbers of old trees remain in GA and SC. Considered one of the worst of all pecan cultivars.
