You can buy pecans from many different places, but they will never be as good as those right off the farm. Koinonia pecans are the best of the best! Often pecans you purchase at the grocery are dark or what Koinonia calls "ambers". Ambers is the name given to a pecan that is darker in color and may or may not have other flavor issues. The Koinonia Pecans you purchase as halves or pieces are always a bright color and deliver the correct pecan flavor. Try some...I think you will agree!
