Default Re: lbs.

For pecans as shown in the images below, typical weights appear to be as follows:
Pecan pieces - 3.5 lbs./gallon
Pecan halves - 3.6 lbs./gallon (up to 4 lbs./gallon, note below)
Whole (in-shell) pecans - 4.8 lbs./gallon

If you want to be sure you have enough pecans to fill a container to the brim, you may want to raise the estimates above by 10-15% or so. For example, the tub of pecan halves shown below comes in at a heavier equivalent of 4 lbs./gallon, possibly because the flexible top allows some overfilling:
