Uses

Edible uses

Notes

The fruit is used to impart a flavour to plant milks[1].

The following two uses have been given for the closely related P. chinensis and not for this species, but it is assumed that they do apply here also.

Young shoots and leaves - cooked. Used as a vegetable[2][3][4][1].

Seed - roasted and eaten or used in confectionery[5][1].

Leaves

Material uses

The plant can be used as a rootstock for the pistachio nut, P. vera[6]. Wood - very hard, durable, beautifully marked. Used in furniture making, carving etc[7][8].

Unknown part

Medicinal uses(Warning!)

Galls, produced on the tree in response to attacks by insects, are expectorant and tonic[9]. They are used in the treatment of coughs, phthisis, asthma, dysentery etc[9]. Resin from the closely related P. lentiscus is analgesic, antitussive, expectorant and sedative. It would be worthwhile examining this species[10].

Propagation

Pre-soak the seed for 16 hours in alkalized water[11], or for 3 - 4 days in warm water[12], and sow late winter in a cold frame or greenhouse[11][13]. Two months cold stratification may speed up germination, so it might be better to sow the seed in early winter[13]. The germination is variable and can be slow. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow on the plants for at least their first winter in a greenhouse. Plant out into their permanent positions in early summer and consider giving some protection from winter cold for their first year or two outdoors[K].
