About Pistacia terebinthus

Pistacia terebinthus gum or resin is taken from the branches and stems of shrubs of the pistachio family Anacardiaceae, which is a small shrub or tree, usually up to 3 meters high, but if grown well and taking cared of, in the garden its height reaches 14 meters.

This gum is clear, white and very soft at first. But in the presence of air, it hardens quickly and turns yellow and opaque over time. The gum pieces of this small tree are oval, spherical or drop-shaped. This gum is fragrant, aromatic and almost sweet.

Pistacia terebinthus is a shrub with almost evergreen leaves that all parts of the plant smells mastic resin. The leaves are slightly elongated, oval, and rhomboidal and grow crosswise without petioles. The flowers are red and very small and grow in clusters. The fruits are small, almost spherical, and sometimes oval and grow in clusters. These fruits have three parts: soft shell, hard shell, and core.
