Pecan, pecan, or pecan?
In honor of last week’s pie-filled holiday, we asked how you pronounce “pecan” and more than 100 of you were quick to chime in.
  • “Pea-kahn” — 48%
  • “Puh-kahn” — 44%
  • “Pea-can” — 8%
No matter how you say it, the name of this tree nut has an interesting history. As a first food, the word “pecan” has Native American origins specifically traced to the Algonquin people, translating to “all nuts requiring a stone to crack.” Pecans gained widespread popularity among American colonists in the 18th and 19th centuries, becoming more valuable than crops like cotton in some places. Today, there are 1,000+ varieties of pecan trees, many of which bear tribal names.
