Grow Your Very Own Delicious and Healthy Pistachios!

Never buy another expensive pistachio again. Pistachios are notoriously expensive in the store and market, and they’re hardly fresh. When you grow your own Pistachio Tree, you'll get more than your money's worth with an endless supply of fresh pistachios straight from your garden.

Consistently ranked as a favorite nut. With its distinct, rich flavor and natural sweetness, pistachios are always a favorite snack. They're easy and fun to eat, and your family will love having access to your Pistachio Tree harvest. 

They're healthy too. Did you know that pistachios are the lowest calorie nut? They're an ideal snack because they're full of healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, antioxidants, phytosterols, and carotenoids - all essential components to maintaining health and wellness. We have a tendency to snack on what's available, so keeping a consistent supply of pistachios around will be not only a delightful treat for you and your family but a healthy choice too. 

Pistachio Trees grow where hardly anything else will. Pistachio trees are very particular about the climate they have grown in, but luckily they're perfect for people who live in the desert where beautiful green shade trees are hard to come by. 

Plant it and then watch it grow. As long as the climate is right and you've got a male and a female, your Pistachio trees will produce a huge harvest every other year. And there's hardly any maintenance and upkeep to these dry-weather loving trees. Most trees produce around 50 lbs. of nuts per year. That's plenty to share with your friends and family.

Pistachio nuts are easy to harvest. When your pistachios start splitting, just throw down a tarp, shake the branches and watch the delicious pistachios fall to the ground. Just a few days in the sun and you'll have fresh pistachios ready to eat.

They stay fresh for months. Don't worry if you can't eat all your pistachios right from the harvest. They'll stay fresh for months in a closed jar or sealed bag. And if you need to keep them for even longer, the fridge or freezer will do the trick.

Order 2 trees to make sure you get your harvest. Pistachio trees don't self-pollinate, but we make it easy for you. We bundled the Randy and Golden Hills, which pair perfectly together. Just plant them both at the same time, sit back, and let the wind do the rest!

Treat yourself and your family to a fresh, healthy snack. Your family will love sitting under the shade of your Pistachio tree, and they'll love having access to fresh pistachios whenever they want. Don't let another season go buy without a pair of Pistachio Trees in your yard. Order your Randy and Golden Hills Pistachio trees today.

too early to tell
I am looking forward to the pistachio yield. It is too early to tell whether we will be able to harvest next year hopefully year. I have several smaller nut trees in an area I hope they will do well in and we certainly enjoy nuts. These are a great size for my side yard. We have a large pecan in the back but the nuts are always rotted inside. Not sure why. We have not been successful eating any of them thus far.

Alive so far.
It's hard to write a review for Pistachio Trees when it will take 5 to 7 years for them to produce. They are only in the ground about 3 weeks. They seem to be slowly pushing out some new shoots. I will see how things are a few years from now if they are still alive.

Growing well; no issues
I planted two of these last fall. Both sprung to life in April and are growing well on semi-shaded ground with a pretty good slope; very pleased with them.

I am hoping these pistachio trees will grow quickly.
The trees were tall, but not as developed as I expected. One of them arrived as a twig, but when I called until the customer service line they replaced it immediately. I am hoping that these grow quickly over the summer and next year

These trees seem to be very hardy after the way the shipper handled the boxes and they have a lot of new growth.
So far the trees seem to be rooting in the Florida soil and handling the weather and heat. I've had some really bad storms come through and they with stood the high winds and hard rain. You can see some small sprouts coming out for new growth. I've also been watering them every other day to make sure that they are getting enough water.

male and female
I ordered the male and female pistachio tree about 5 weeks ago. It's planted and I am ready. It might take up to 5 years before I will be able to eat them. But,I am ok with that.
I may even order another male pistachio just to make sure the female becomes extremely fertile and pops out extra seeds. :)
They arrived fresh and ready to plant. I think they did a great job to insure the tree survived all the way down to Texas.
I can't wait!!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Pistachio Tree

Pistachio Tree Planting Diretions

The right climate: For your Pistachio Tree to grow, it will need to be planted in the right climate. Pistachio trees do not thrive in humidity, so a dry heat is essential. 

The right spot: Plant your Pistachio Tree in any kind of soil, but make sure that it is well-draining. Plant in a spot that receives direct sunlight and little to no shade. Trees need to be planted at least 15' apart, as Pistachio Trees do not grow well when crowded.

Planting Instructions: Plant in a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Spread the roots out in the hole and backfill with soil. Make sure the top of the rootball is flush with the soil. Gently tamp down with a shovel. Add a layer of mulch to prevent weeds, and then water deeply. You will likely need to stake both sides of your tree when it is young. 

Watering: Water only every few weeks. It is better to do an infrequent deep irrigation than shallow and frequent. If the leaves begin to turn yellow, you are watering too much. Pistachio Trees are very drought tolerant and are sensitive to overwatering. 

Fertilization: Add a 10-10-10 NPK fertilizer in the spring of your trees 2nd year and every spring after.

Pruning: When the branches of your tree have grown to be longer than 6 feet, it's time to prune. Each spring, create a scaffolding with 3-5 branches. To do this, choose a few strong branches that are 24-32 inches above the soil. Cut everything below these branches and remove the highest branches. Then cut all remaining branches down to 4-6 inches. In the summer, prune the scaffolding branches down to 2-3 feet. Repeat each year.

Pests and Diseases: There should be no pests or diseases on your tree, but to deter and prevent, be sure to always remove anything that's fallen from the tree in Autumn including dead leaves, broken shells and husks.

Harvesting: Your Pistachio Tree will likely start producing nuts after 5-7 years as long as you have planted both a male and female tree. Your nuts will be ready to harvest when they turn from green to yellow and red and when they begin to split from the outer husk. Simply lay a tarp down and shake the branches to encourage nuts to fall from the tree.

Post-Harvest: First, remove any remaining husks from the nuts. Then, separate the nuts with split shells from those that have not split. Discard any black, empty or moldy shells. Then remove the shells from the nuts that did not split. This is necessary for the drying process. If the shell is split, you do not need to remove the shell. Then lay all the nuts down on a tarp in the sun and allow them to dry. You will likely need to also lay a screen on top to deter birds and critters from eating your pistachios. The drying process varies, but the best test is a taste test. Your pistachios should be firm and crunchy. If they are soggy, you'll need to keep drying them. Soggy pistachios are not shelf stable.

Storage. Store your pistachios in a sealed container, glass jar or plastic bag. They will keep for a couple months. If you need to store them longer than 2 months, place them in the fridge or freezer where they will stay fresh until the next harvest.

Cheyenne D on Jan 22, 2018
We live in the suburbs but we were raised on farms. I have issues paying for water that is watering trees that only bloom = I prefer fruit or nut producing trees you get something from them, Plus harvest time is so special. My children love harvesting from our fruit trees! And these pistachio trees will be a treasured addition! They will also add additional privacy for our backyard. They’re a win-win-win! :-)

When is the best time to plant these?
Mike N on Nov 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: in the spring need time to set up there roots and don't be in zone 6 they won't make it special if u plant them in the fall
i'm in zone 6 in map, do you think will survive the pistachio tree ?
zone 6 on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Im pretty sure it do well, especially since pistachio trees require lots of water and if you have 2 trees which typically they come in 2 then water is essential, but if your interested in other trees then chestnut and walnuts and so on do well in zones 4-6 as well. You could find something there and go from there but I have pistachio trees and growing just fine here in Southern California
Does the male and female tree produce pistachios?
James B on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just purchased my pair in January (6 months ago). The description said the pair will cross pollinate and in about 5 or 6 years will produce. I have about 4.5 to 5 years before I will know if they will. When my male and female pair arrived, they were both dormant and looked like little sticks, but I followed the directions, and I am happy to say they both have grown about 1 foot and now have lovely branches and leaves, so I’m optimistic. We love pistachios, so these 2 trees are my prized possessions and project. I hope this helps. :-)
Hi does the pistachio tree grow in PA?
Cesar R on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn’t know, but I don’t think so. Pistachio love hot sun and sandy loam (clay type) of soil and they like dry more them rain. So my bet would to get something else like a pecan walnut or hazelnut
My Randy I bought from you has two different leaf types. Is that normal or has it been grafted?
Rick G on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It has been grafted. you can tell where the Randy was grafted onto the root stock. Remove any new growth from the root stock, it will only sap energy from the desired graft.

I live adjacent to a tidal marsh & creek in SC: can pistachio trees survive occasional (short--e.g., 2 hours, once in five years) salt water flooding? The soil is a clayey sand, with compost added.
Mike G on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: years ago I studied buying pistachio trees. and was told the pist. was subject to "root rot" diease and not a good choice for damp soils.
How long to have pistachosss?
Adrian D on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Based on the size of the tree that shipped this year, if you plant after last chance of frost, you should get a light crop this year and full crop the next or at the latest, two into the planting. If you want loads of nuts, plant several females - the Peter can pollinate more than one tree.
It freezes here in San Antonio 3 to 4 days a year. Will they tolerate a freeze after established?. I am covering now because I just planted. The freeze comes just 1 day and then not again for awhile.
