About Pistacia Khinjuk

It is a small tree with a height of 3 to 7 meters, its bark is smooth, its leaves are oddly combed with petioles. Each leaf consists of 1 to 3 ovate leaflets, whose dimensions are 3 to 10 x 1.5 to 7 cm. Its fruit is similar to a pistachio, but round, spherical, slightly compressed and pointed, with a diameter of about 0.5 cm.

This tree is distributed in northern Syria, northern Iraq, Afghanistan to Punjab and Kashmir. In Iran, it grows in different areas in the highlands of Zagros to Baluchistan.

In order to get the gum, collectors wound the trunk of the tree in the hot season and the resin comes out of the crack. This resin, which is condensed and pasty at first, is very similar to Persian Turpentine resin.

In Kurdistan, because the resin which comes out is mixed with soil and dirt and is dirty after collection, it is called “Bitter Turpentine” and it is boiled and purified in water to get ready for the market. From this resin, which is a type of oleoresin, colophony is prepared after extracting the essential oil.
