Pistachio plant comprises a pattern, responsible for the strength and efficiency of absorption of both nutrients and water and a variety which is grafted yolk, He is responsible for the fruit and dependent on climatic factors such as: cold hours, heat hours, relative humidity and rainfall.
What pattern use?
From the technical services of the cooperative, We evaluate the soil parameters of each floor, by soil analysis and calicatas, for the optimal choice of pattern:
- Rainfed or irrigation system
- Reserve capacity of soil water.
- Nutrient contribution of soil and blockages of chemical elements.
- Depth of soil.
- Historical and determination of disease, Verticillium spp fundamentally.
- Necessary corrections soil before planting.
- Pistacia terebintus (Cornicabra):
species native to Spain. It is very rustic with excellent adaptation to poor soils, chalky and shallow. It withstands drought well. Vigor medium to low and good affinity with all varieties. It is the one with better nutritional efficiency. Sensitive to root asphyxia. Sensible a Verticilosis
- Atlantic Pistacia:
Originally from North Africa and the Canary Islands. It is quite rustic, although less than cornicabra, with excellent adaptation to the soil loose but enduring more than cornicabra heavy soils. It withstands drought well. Cornicabra greater vigor and good affinity with all varieties. Good nutritional efficiency. Sensible a Verticilosis
hybrid Pistacia atlantica Y Pistacia spotless, offering resistance to cold (P. Atlantic) and tolerance Verticilosis (P. The sensitive). Pattern with low nutritional efficiency and better tolerate soils with a clay content. It has great vigor, greater than P. Atlantica
What variety engraft?
He is originally from Tunisia, variety of great vigor, postage branched globose, and productive. Medium and has an elongated fruit with a very good taste. It has a moderate vecería, in late entry into production, with a high amount of low fruit open and empty fruit. You need less cold hours avdat, Larnaca, sirora and Kerman.

Variety from the US selection program, variety highly appreciated worldwide for its large size and rounded. Under dry conditions it has a high vecería, high number of closed and empty fruit. High needs cold hours.
What variety put under the cold hours?
The cold hours necessary for growing the Pistachio, refers to the accumulated time you are below the pistachero 7 ºC. According to the above we have a range of needs ranging from the 600 until 1200 cold hours.
Ascending order needs have:
Mateur < Avdat < Larnaca < sirora < kerman
What male need depending on the variety?
Grafted varieties of pistachero need pollinator, that is to say, males need, since the bloom of the pistachero is monoica, ie in the same tree have only one type of flower, male or female.
Therefore every female cultivar needs pollen from the male to fertilize the female flower of the pistachero.
Males are selected according to the time of flowering, to be coincident with the female, thus we have the following pairs of females / males:
|Larnaka y avdat||C-special|
|Sirora||Peter + C-special|
