Pistachios are of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern origin. Your tree needs a hot and dry, semi-desert climate, with warm summers so that the fruit can ripen properly. Tolerates up to 40 degrees Celsius. It resists the wind well, but not the rains.
The tree takes more than 5 years to bear fruit and does not reach its maximum production after 10 or 15 years. It produces fruit for 60 years.
It is enough to move the tree so that those fruits that have reached their point of maturity and are ready to be collected are easily detached. It is known that the fruit has reached this point because you can see that the rind of the fruit has opened and you can see deep green inside. It is usually collected before its full maturity to avoid pests that can damage the fruit.
Once collected, the cascade layer must be removed to prevent the proliferation and development of toxin-generating fungi. It is important to emphasize that if the shell of the pistachio is not open, this fruit should not be eaten, as it is still green and unripe.
