Uzbek Pistachio Seedling
Surprisingly hardy, Pistachio trees grow wild throughout Central Asia. Our Uzbek Pistachio came from orchards where they are grown as large shrubs. An attractive shrub or broad spreading small to medium size tree, Pistachio features grayish-green foliage and prolific reddish husks inside which you will find the delicious nuts. Pistachio trees require a male and female to bear nuts. It will be several years before you will know the sex of these seedlings.
