Surprisingly hardy, Pistachio trees grow wild throughout Central Asia where temperatures can follow below 0??F. Our Uzbekistan seedlings came from orchards where they are grown as large shrubs. (From the One Green World website)
Not that I really have the room for something like this, but each year it’s on my list to find out more about and the information out there doesn’t seem to be growing (pun unintended). The idea of being able to grow pistachios is tempting, and likely as improbable as getting ripe pomegranates but I’ve got 3 of those.
