The Burkett pecan tree orginated in Texas. According to a text about Famous Trees in Texas, in the fall of 1900 two young sons of J. H. Burkett, Omar and Joe, found nuts from the parent of the original Burkett pecan tree. When the boys told their father they found the pecans in a squirrel nest, he urged them to return and find the treet that bore them.
After some searching they found the parent tree growing on the south bank of Battle Fish Creek, Callahan County, and obtained some bud-wood, which their father grafted to a second-growth seedling. Although only two buds grew, they produced the first two nuts in 1905. In 1908 one bud was destroyed, and by 1910 the parent tree had been destroyed also. The other grafted bud grew into the tree now known as the original Burkett pecan. In the 1920s and 1930s the Burkett papershell pecan was the most popular variety of pecan because of its thin shell, unusual flavor, and large size.
