Fruit Trees > Nut Trees > Pine Nut Tree
The Pine nut tree is often called the 'Stone Pine'. This name apparently comes from the idea that this tree grows well in stony ground. An attractive large pine tree that bears cones of edible nuts considered a delicacy. Grows best in dry cold areas. Trees can be expected to start producing cones from about year 6, but one planting in New Zealand produced its first cones after 3 1/2 years. Each cone holds about 50 nuts and 100 kg of cones holds about 20 kg of nuts. The kernels can be eaten raw, roasted or prepared into sweet meats, cakes, puddings, stuffings, soups and of course the most popular usage is the Italian gourmet PESTO. It is the source of a high quality expensive oil that is made mostly in France.

An attractive large pine tree that bears cones of edible nuts. These are considered a delicacy in Mediterranean style cooking, due to their sweet, buttery flavour. Trees can be expected to start producing cones from about year 6. But can take longer. Each cone holds about 50 nuts and 100 kg of cones holds about 20 kg of nuts. Grows best in dry cooler areas with excellent drainage. Trees can set nuts on their own, but cones may be poorly filled. Plant two or more to improve nut set.

Pine Nut Tree

SO far my two pine Nut trees are surviving, No extra water or care on sandy red soil. Unaffected by our frost, or this years very dry summer. Oldest is only 5 years old - slow grower 2m high. No cones as yet, but I'm impressed by their survival.

I am growing Stony Pine trees from seed in tiny pots with ordinary potting mix. The seeds are a few years out of date but they are growing anyway so don't throw away old seeds. Have fun!
