The oldest pistachio tree in Turkmenistan is 800 years old

As scientists consider, the oldest pistachio tree in Turkmenistan is over 800 years old, and it is located in the Kepele gorge of the Badhyz state reserve.

The Badhyz reserve is located between the Tejen and Murgab rivers, and pistachio forests in it occupy more than 20 thousand hectares of land. At the moment, they are preparing to harvest pistachios, reports the publication “Turkmenistan: Golden Age”.

The age of some fruit-bearing trees can be determined as 500-600 years old.

The pistachio tree begins to bear fruit at the age of 15-18. Each tree produces an average of 2 to 5 kilograms of nuts, and in some cases up to 15 kilograms of the crop.

The pistachio forests of Turkmenistan are protected by the state. Within the framework of government programs for environmental protection, it is planned to expand the area under crops, notes the source.
