Looking for a unique and culturally significant tree that is both ornamental and edible? Check out the Pinus edulis, also known as the Colorado Pinyon Pine or simply Piñon. This small to medium-sized tree, native to the United States, is most notable for its delicious pine nuts which are collected and eaten extensively by Native American tribes. Not only is this tree rich in oil, protein, and thiamine, but its seeds can be ground into a meal and used in stews, bread, cakes, and nut butter. The Piñon Pine is also celebrated in folklore as the "tree of life," with ancient cultural sites found within areas of Pinyon Canyon, Colorado. As an ornamental tree, the Piñon Pine is a beautiful addition to any landscape with its moderately stout, green needles and globose, yellow-buff cones. Get your own piece of cultural and edible history with the Pinus edulis today!
