All species from the Pistacia genus are dioecious. This character negatively affects yield and quality of pistachios. Monoecious P. atlantica genotypes have been found in the Yunt mountains of the Manisa province of Turkey. The monoecious P. atlantica genotypes are divided into two groups: (1) one of the trees is fully monoecious i.e., all branches bear a mixture of male and female inflorescences and (2) two trees have several branches with only staminate flowers, while the rest of the branches… CONTINUE READING
