Growing more pistachios with less water

Wonderful Pistachio Rootstock offers greater yield without greater water consumption

Sometimes sustainability isn’t just about using less, it’s about creating more. After more than 20 years of meticulous research, development, and breeding, we created the Wonderful Pistachio Rootstock (WPR), which produces a 30 percent higher yield than other pistachio trees without requiring an extra drop of water.

We have designated over 25,000 acres for planting through 2022, with the expectation that our rootstock can yield more pistachios per acre than any other rootstock on the market.

We call the Wonderful Pistachio Rootstock our super tree. We make it available to other pistachio growers via our company, Wonderful Nurseries. Learn more by visiting www.wonderfulnurseries.com/.
