pistachio inshell

General information

The pistachio is a shrub with a knotty twisted trunk and short-lived foliage. Each leaf is composed of 3-5 little leaves with an elliptic circular shape and a dark colour. The species is dioicus: there are masculine and feminine plants. Reproduction starts from the seed, with a spring germination and the strength to grow full yields when the plant reaches the age of five or six years old. The fruits are drupes, fleshy with a single seed inside covered by a hard and resistant shell.
