Product Code : 314
- Botanical name: Pistacia Vera
- Synonyms: Terebinthus Mill
- Common Name: Pistachio
- The bush grows up to 10 m (33 ft) tall. It has deciduous pinnate leaves 10-20 centimeters long. The plants are dioecious, with separate male and female trees. The flowers are apetalous and unisexual, and borne in panicles.
- The fruit is a drupe, containing an elongated seed, which is the edible portion. The seed, commonly thought of as a nut, is a culinary nut, not a botanical nut. The fruit has a hard, creamish exterior shell. The seed has a mauvish skin and light green flesh, with a distinctive flavor. When the fruit ripens, the shell changes from green to an autumnal yellow/red, and abruptly splits part way open. This is known as dehiscence, and happens with an audible pop. The splitting open is a trait that has been selected by humans.Commercial cultivars vary in how consistently they split open.
