|Common name||Chinese Pistachio|
|Germination||Pre-soak the seed for 16 hours in alkalized water, or, for 3 - 4 days in warm water (use a thermos). Two months cold stratification may speed up germination. Plant 3/4" deep at 80°F. Keep damp (cover pot with plastic sheet) and provide bright light. The germination is variable and can be slow.|
|Scarification / Stratification|| This will break their dormancy. It creates a cold and moist environment for the seeds. Mixed in seeds with slightly moistened vermiculite or peat, only damp in a ziplock bag. Close zip bag shut and store it in the salad crisper compartment of your refrigerator. If any seeds begin to sprout during the cold stratification, simply remove the seed and plant.
