Contrary to popular belief, how you pronounce “pecan” depends on more than where you live in relation to the Mason-Dixon line.

Many people believe Southerners say “pee-can” while Northerners say “puh-kahn.” According to the National Pecan Shellers Association (which, we assume, is the foremost authority on all things pecan), only 45 percent of Southerners are Team Pee-can—unlike 70 percent of people in the Northeast.

How do you say pecan ? It’s an eternal question, much like “ Do you put sugar in your cornbread?” or “Where is over yonder?” Pecans aren’t just part of our favorite pies. They’re part of the Southern landscape and the fabric of Southern agriculture. You can scarcely have Thanksgiving in the South

Both ways tbh. I have no idea what makes me pronounce it one way or the other at any given moment.

I’m a native Alabamian and have always pronounced it “puh-kahn.” I polled about 20 coworkers and friends who grew up in various parts of the U.S.—all but one Georgian said “pee-can.” So what gives?

“Conventional wisdom holds that the difference is regional, one more thing separated by the Mason-Dixon line,” Kathleen Purvis, author of Pecans: A Savor the South Cookbook, wrote in a 2013 article for Our State Magazine, a North Carolina-based publication. “Sorry, but that’s just not so. I’ve listened to people from all over. And in my experience, this pronunciation isn’t North versus South. It’s urban versus rural.”

According to Purvis, “If you want to sound down-home or a little bit country, say ‘pee-can.’ If you want to sound a little more urbane, say ‘pah-cahn.’”

Is it Pea-can or Peh-cahn pie? The Good Morning Tampa Bay crew is debating ahead of Thanksgiving.

Full disclosure: This answer doesn’t line up with my experience. (Then again, I didn’t write the literal book on pecans).

I come from a long line of “puh-kahn” sayers and, while most members of my deeply Southern family aren’t exactly hillbillies, we definitely fall closer to “a little bit country” than “urbane” on the spectrum in question.

Meanwhile, my Manhattan born-and-bred former coworker says he eats “pee-cans” and not “puh-kahns.”

It looks like, in this particular instance, there may not be a definitive answer—so just shut up and eat your pie.

Pecan 101

The pecan is a type of hickory nut native to northern Mexico and the southern U.S.

Though it’s primarily cultivated in Georgia, it’s a state symbol in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Pecans were widely consumed and traded by Native Americans pre-European settlement. Since they’re edible long after they’ve been separated from the tree, they were a practical choice for consumers in a preagricultural society.
