How do you say pecan?

You say tom-ay-to, I say tom-ah-to … but what’s the proper pronunciation of pecan? The Georgia Pecan Growers Association (Georgia Pecans) wants to help settle the question, and they’ve enlisted the aid of Lauren Alaina, a homegrown American Idol standout, to give her opinion.

After much thought, Lauren weighs in on the subject in a new video distributed by Georgia Pecans. The organization is hoping a bit of fun will shine the spotlight on one of our state’s most delicious crops – no matter how you say it.
