How quickly will pecans come into production?

A pecan tree should be precocious (begin bearing at an early age) but should not overbear as a mature tree to the point that nut quality is unacceptable or that the tree becomes a severe alternate bearer. Older cultivars are generally less precocious than the newer ones, which begin producing as early as 5 or 6 years.
