It is a type of mountain pistachio whose tree height reaches seven meters which has many species.

The leaves of Persian Turpentine tree are elongated, oval, and sometimes almond-shaped, and grow reciprocally without petioles.

The fruits are small, spherical, and oval and grow in clusters. These fruits contain three parts: soft skin, hard skin, and core. The soft skin of Persian Turpentine fruits is usually a combination of pink and yellow colors, and under it there is a hard, cream peel, and inside it is a small, dark, oily and almost oval seed.
