Graft holder

UCB1- Seed

Hybrid from closed pollination of Pistacia Atlántica x Pistacia integérrima , and which has become the most widely used rootstock worldwide since it was obtained in the 80s, due to its high vigor, great adaptability and resistance to Verticillium, it also has a very good resistance to salinity and other diseases, such as Phytophthora or armilaria . Suitable for medium drylands and irrigation.

UCB1- TRB

Clonal plants from a specimen selected in an extensive plantation located in Terrabella – California, which stands out for its extraordinary vigor and the magnificent affinity it presented in the graft.

UCB1- SPORT

Clonal plants from seeds of a part of the tree that had slightly different phenological characteristics, and that after germination we could verify that they were more vigorous than UCB1 plants from seeds.

UCB1- FORDE

Clonal plants from a specimen selected in a plantation in Castilla y León, for its resistance to cold, graft compatibility and great vigor.

Cornicabra TSK

Clonal plants from a selection of plants that are not properly cornicabras – Pistacia Terebinthus , but an old cross of Pistacia Terebinthus x Pistacia Palaestina , a cross that generates greater vigor than any cornicabra, greater development in dry plantations and good grafting behavior.

MIX

Clonal plants from a cross of Pistacia Terebinthus x Pistacia Atlántica, which, as in most hybrids, entails that heterosis or hybrid vigor (greater strength of different characteristics) that translates into excellent behavior above all in extreme dry areas, a characteristic inherited from the Atlantic Pistacia.

Atlántica 121

Clonal plants from plants obtained from a seedbed made with seeds from a Atlantic Pistacia stand selected in Syria. Excellent rootstock for areas with low rainfall and high salinity soils, and with good vigor.

Varieties

Kerman

Californian variety selected in 1936 from a batch of seeds collected by W. E. Whitehouse in Kerman – Iran. It is the best known and most cultivated table variety for the quality and size of its fruits. It presents medium vigor, a medium dehiscence, and a medium-high production. Variety of table.

Sirora

Australian variety obtained from a Red Aleppo seedbed by CSIRO, which has similar characteristics to Kerman , except that it has greater vigor and a higher percentage of open fruits. Flowers and matures about 10 days on average before Kerman. Variety of table.

Larnaka

Variety native to Cyprus, of great vigor, excellent flavor, moderate maturity, low percentage of vain fruits, very good dehiscence of the fruits and good agronomic behavior together with an early entry into production. It requires around 400 hours of cold. Variety of industry.

Napoletana or Bianca

Sicilian variety, also called Bianca, and main variety of the appellation “Pistacchio Verde di Bronte”. Presents a precocity and medium vigor. The intense green color of its fruits, ideal for by-products, and the low local production generates a high demand and price, even though it is a variety of industry.

Aegina

It is the Greek variety par excellence. It presents medium production and small pistachios and delicate flavor. It is early to enter production and offers a percentage of open fruits close to 90%. It is considered a fairly productive cultivar. It needs about 200 hours of cold. Variety of industry.

Mateur

Originally from Tunisia, obtained from the seedbed of the Greek variety Aegina or Aeginis by the Frenchman J. Mateur, and therefore very similar to Aegina. Medium production and small pistachios. Variety destined mainly for family gardens on the Mediterranean coast due to its low requirements for cold hours, these being close to 200. Variety for family consumption.

Golden Hills

Experimental variety obtained in California in 2005, and selected under its conditions and recently implanted in our country. With a vigor similar to Kerman and a good percentage of open pistachios. Under certain conditions it may be sensitive to Alternaria spp . Variety of table.

Lost Hills

Experimental variety obtained in California in 2005, and selected under its conditions and recently implanted in our country. With a vigor similar to Sirora and a good percentage of open. Variety of table.

Pollinators

Peters

Male cultivar obtained by A.B. Peters in California. Mainly used for pollination of Kerman . Produces abundant pollen for a medium-long period. It is a cultivar that has high requirements for cold hours.

Randy

Male cultivar suitable for pollination of varieties of intermediate flowering, very early, with a long flowering period, correct pollen viability and high pollen production.

C-Special

Pollinator of Greek origin intended for the pollination of varieties with fewer needs for cold hours. It presents good vigor.
