I would start by contacting Edible Landscaping in Afton, VA (http://ediblelandscaping.com/
). They offer 2 varieties in their catalog, Colby and Peruque, that are hardy and will also pollinate each other. For good nut production, it is always necessary to plant a combination of varieties that can act as pollinators for each other. These two varieties are hardy in your area and should do well for you. Here is some detailed information about them from the Edible Landscaping website: http://ediblelandscaping.com/products/nuts/Pecans/
. Kanza is another hardy variety. Stuart is a good variety but it can take 10 years before the tree begins to bear. I think the folks at Edible Landscaping will be able to answer a lot of your questions if you give them a call. Tell them Andre Viette sent you!
