The pistachio nut is very well known, but the plant is rarely grown in temperate climates. However the plant grows very well as a container plant, if it is protected against frost during the winter. The pistachio is dioecious, so both a male and a female plant are required for fructification. The nuts consist for 50% of fats and are rich in vitamins and minerals. The plants prefer a sunny stand, and need to be put indoors before it starts freezing.

Drie van de vijf uitgekomen. Wat prima is. Zijn nu drie plantjes variërend in grote van tien tot twintig centimeter.

Super, na een week is er één plantje al zeker 7 centimeter hoog. De rest laat nog even op zich wachten.
