Google Pecan. Click on the images and look for a pic with a dime in it for comparison size to a wild pecan. That's pretty typical for what I remember.
Also look at the first couple of lines in the wikipedia entry for pecans under the cultivation heading there. While the pecans are related it's now a relatively distant relation. Just as Stewart and Paper Shell pecans are both pecans they sure don't look alike anymore. I always thought the wood would be similar but never tried any tests.
