Latin name: Berchemia zeyheri.
The real pistachio is a shrub from 3 to 8 meters high that grows in the guarigues and especially in the Mediterranean climate's scrublands. This bush native from the Middle East-Syria-produces pistachios that can be eaten for aperitif, used in pastries or as flavor for ice-creams. It has been imported from Syria by a Roman governor called Lucius Vitellius and became acclimatized to the West Mediterranean regions. Pistachio comes from the Greek word pistaké meaning "true nut".
