'Mohawk' (Nut photo) Orig. by controlled cross ('Success' X 'Mahan') made by L. D. Romberg, USDA-ARS, Brownwood, TX. Cross made in 1946 (full sibling of 'Choctaw'), first fruited in 1953; selected for testing in 1954; tested as 46-15-195. Released in 1965. Nut: oblong with obtuse apex and base; slightly flattened in cross section; shell rough, dark striped; 32 nuts/lb, 59% kernel; kernels golden to light brown in color with narrow dorsal grooves when well-filled. Protogynous, with mid-season pollen shed and early to mid-season pistillate receptivity. Very precocious and prolific with a tendency to alternate bear on mature trees. Freeze susceptible, especially after large crop. Ripens mid-season, about 9 days before 'Stuart'. Susceptible to scab in LA and some GA locations, but generally resistant in TX and OK. Recommended (1990) in AZ, AR, MS, OK, SC, and TN.
