An important part of this is the Bakery Ingredients, such as pecans and peanuts. Pecans are the only tree nut native to North America, Texas is one of the top pecan-producing states, harvesting both native and improved varieties. Texas is a leading producer of peanuts and has the unique distinction of being the only state that grows all four varieties of peanuts.
