At church, there are 6 mature pecan trees all within 100 feet of each other. 5 of them have pecans that are bitter tasting, the 6th taste OK. Anyone have any idea why the pecans are bitter? Something or lack of something in the soil?

Jim, no one knows what variety they are as the trees are around 30" in diamete and the oldest member of the church(91) can't remember them not being there. They all look similar.

Pay attention to the area below "Stink Bugs".

Hope this helps.
Jim, I've been a member at this church for over 18 years and the pecans have always been biiter on those 5 trees. Also youcan get a fresh dropped nut and it's bitter and no spots on the pecans. Have tried fetilizer and zinc sulfate with no improvement
