The pistachio tree is an old tree. Pistachio trees can bear fruit for centuries, with low-yield and so-called fattening years alternating. The fruit usually develops on the tree during the month of July. Harvest time for these fruits is in September. The historical signs of their age show that pistachios were already eaten as food in Asia a thousand years before Christ.
