The origin of the Pistachio plant (usually a small tree) can be traced back to Central Asia and the Middle East. It is a member of the cashew family, and its seeds are mostly consumed as food.


It generally grows in the desert, and it is known to survive high saline soil. Research shows that it grows very well when irrigated with saline water (with about 3,000 to 4,000 ppm of soluble salt). Pistachio trees do inadequately in states of high mugginess and are susceptible to establish decay in winter in the event that they get excessive water and the soil isn't free-draining adequately. For proper ripening of the pistachio fruits, it will have to experience extensive hot summers. The most popular type of the Pistachio seed is the Iranian Pistachio, and it is known for its many benefits.
