Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

A year ago I received pecan seeds in the hoggy swap. I planted them shortly after they arrived. By the end of the summer 8 of them had grown into small seedlings. They are about 6 inches tall. I checked on them a couple days ago. One had winter killed. It's been a mild winter, so not a real long-term winter-hardiness test, but so far, so good.

Did anyone get hazels to grow from the nuts I sent? About 20 seedlings survived for me. That was growing with zero weeding for the entire growing season. I planted many hundreds of seeds, much more than the small handful that I put in packets for the swap.
