Documents and research have shown that the origin of pistachio trees lies in the North-east of Iran. For 5000 years people have been eating pistachios. Historic records claim that the queen of Sheba herself, demanded all of the Assyrian pistachios for her court.
The pistachio belongs to the Ancardiaceae family. Pistachio trees usually grow up to 8 meters tall. These trees can tolerate different extremes in temperature: up to 45°C and lower than 25°C. Pistachio trees are second (after the date palm) which can survive for long periods of time without water. Their roots reach deep into the soil to find water. Depending on the environment in which the tree is planted, a pistachio tree will start to fruit between 7 to 10 years after being planted and continue to live and fruit for about 80 to 100 years.
