How do you differentiate between walnuts and pecans in Spanish?

It recently occurred to me that the Spanish *nuez* can be translated to English as both "walnut" and "pecan." Is the same word really used for both types of nuts? How would you specify which nut you're talking about when the difference is important (say, in a recipe)?
