Growers are still putting pecans into cold storage while prices for export quality and 
retail gift shop purchases are low as many are purchasing pecans from other sources. 
Domestic shellers are busy this week and growers are sending in their B grade pecans to 
make room for their better quality nuts to be stored. Talk of export buyers coming in as 
they have in the past is still ongoing but they are not as active as was expected.
