Texas Pistachio

Anacardiaceae Pistacia texana

The Texas pistachio does not produce nuts.  The fruit is not edible and will not appear unless both male and female trees are nearby.  The leaves usually stay on the tree during the winter unless it is very cold.  It is found only in Val Verde and Terrell counties but will do well from Austin southward.   In Dallas it will need some protection.  Its maximum height is about 35 feet. It must be well drained and prefers full sun.
