The hican is a hickory x pecan cross and thus the name blend, "hic""can". Though the hickory and the pecan often grow in association with each other, they rarely cross. Of those crosses that exist, there are few that are productive. The Burton is one of the best and will ripen in Ontario. A seedling of Burton, called Dooley is also productive. It seems to be a backcross to shagbark hickory. Both have the round shape and thin shell of the pecan, but are larger and fill better than pecans of equal size.
