I was browsing the dave wilson site looking at weatherman’s leahcot pictures and saw that in the past people have asked about a source for mail order pistachio nut trees. I got mine from and Arizona Pistachio Nursery in Tucson. The owner used to live in Dalhart Texas and has been super helpful. Plants were one gallon containerized.

We got our 8 pistachios from the same place. Didnt mail order, just picked them up when we pass thru Tucson. Nice guys to deal with. 5 years in the ground and we got our first couple nuts set this year.

I’d love to be able to grow Pistachios. I notice that most of what I’m buying these days say they are California grown…used to be that most were imported I thought.

California is one of the largest producers of Kerman pistachio variety, although in recent years there are better varieties lost hills, golden hills and some more.

pistachio need a few hours of cold in winter, but also needs a lot of heat in summer to produce well, if you live in climate zone 6 not advise you to plant pistachios, you need to have more heat in summer

Do you know of any humid climates with frequent summer and fall rainfall where Pistachio are successfully grown? My understanding is this is a crop for dry summer climates.
