Description Germination Extended Information

An extremely hardy 5 needle pine from Europe's mountains. Starts bearing sweet, oil and protein rich edible nuts when 2-3 metres tall. Highly ornamental as well with soft blue green 12 cm long needles. Upright branching makes a narrow pyramidal form. Undemanding tree. Resistant to White Pine Blister Rust. Prefers clay soils but will do well in sandy loam types as well. The Steirmark (Styria) region of Austria (my paternal origins) makes one memorable liquor from the young tender needles...and quickly soothes an upset tummy.
