Chinese Pistachio. The pistachio is a broad, bushy, deciduous tree which grows slowly to a height and spread of 25 to 30 feet, with one or several trunks. The reddish, wrinkled fruits are borne in heavy clusters somewhat like grapes. Horticulturally, because it is very drought tolerant and can survive harsh environments, it is a popular choice for street tree in urban settings. It is also used as an understock for Pistacia vera. In China the oil from the seeds is used for biodiesel production. The wood is used for production of furniture and yields a yellow dye.
Plant the seeds 1/2" deep in potting soil mix, keep damp and in bright light.
