Title: Pistachios in Florida?
Post by: Tropheus76 on November 19, 2019, 02:59:06 PM
Are there any varieties that are "low chill" able to take Central Florida humidity and rainy season and still fruit? I realize we are the southern edge of their livable zones.

Iíve Looked into growing pistachios here in nw Florida in the past, and the consensus seems to be no. There doesnít seem to be a variety able to withstand our rain and humidity.

Still...if you can find cheap trees (or viable seed) it might be worth growing some out as an experiment.
