In general, pecans have a sweet nutty and buttery flavor. The flavor is quite unique and scrumptious. Though there are a few varieties of pecans and each one, have its own taste. Pawnee pecan from North America has a very rich and buttery taste. Western pecans originated from West Texas, and Arizona has a bit drier taste but a very crunchy texture. Wichita is a popular species of pecans from Texas with a little drier and crunchy taste. The native pecans are by far the best variety as they are from the native lands of Southern America. They have high oil content, which makes their flavor the richest and very buttery with a slight saltiness.
