The pistachio nut is very well known, but the plant is rarely grown in temperate climates. However the plant grows very well as a container plant, if it is protected against frost during the winter. The pistachio is dioecious, so both a male and a female plant are required for fructification. The nuts consist for 50% of fats and are rich in vitamins and minerals. The plants prefer a sunny stand, and need to be put indoors before it starts freezing.
