Siberian Pine is very similar to the Swiss Stone Pine often referred to as a subspecies. What makes it stand apart is that it grows larger nuts and is slightly hardier. It’s a slow grower like the other Stone Pines but can live up to 800 years! Trees can start producing around 8-11 years. It can be grown in a variety of soils such as clay to sandy loam. Will grow well in our prairie soils. In Russia where it originates, it is known for its medicinal uses especially from its resin and nut oil. Seeds selected from heathy parent trees in Saskatchewan.
