Pistachio tree

 Pistachio tree

      


 The pistachio tree is about 10 meters tall. Leaves emerge on both sides of the stem. The flowers are very small brown and pinkish green. Both male and female plants are planted for fruiting. A male plant is planted with eight to ten female plants. It bears fruit five years after planting. Yields begin to decline 12 years after fruiting. The best time to pick the fruit from the plant is when the temperature is not more than 36 degrees in summer and not less than 36 degrees in winter. Most pistachios in the world are grown in Iran, followed by Jammu and Kashmir, China, Syria and the United States. The fruit falls just by shaking the branches of the tree.
