UCB-1) have not been propagated from cuttings. Propagation of UCB-1 from cuttings will permit selection of superior genotypes and the production of uniform rootstocks with conventional nursery by: Barghchi M & Martinelli A () In vitro propagation of mature Pistacia vera varieties of Kerman (female) and Peter’s (male) Pistachio.
