Pistachio tree

Pistachio is a plant that has been cultivated in different parts of Iran for a long time and there are wild pistachio forests in the northeastern region of Iran, especially on the border of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. It is thought that the pistachio tree was domesticated and cultivated in Iran about 3-4 thousand years ago. Pistachio tree has a very long life and can live up to 300 years. Planted pistachio trees, from about the seventh to the tenth year after planting, reach a significant yield and in the twentieth year reach the highest yield.

It is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 10 meters and produce an average of 50 kg in a two-year period. Pistachio is a desert and hardy plant and can tolerate soils with high salinity and temperatures between -10 degrees in winter and +48 degrees Celsius in summer. This tree needs hot and dry summers and well-drained soil to produce and does not grow well in wet or cold areas.
