Turkish pistachios Antep is also known as Damascus pistachio in some regions. Turkish Pistachios in Turkey grow on a tree that belongs to the gum tree family. Bittim (melengiç) tree, known as the wild pistachio tree, is a self-growing tree in nature. Today, it is planted on trees to be used as rootstock. When the self-grown Bıttım tree reaches a certain size, peanut grafting is applied to the tree. In this way, the tree turns into a pistachio tree.
