PISTACHIO & NUTS GROUP

Pistachio and nuts

Pistachio is a tree nut. It belongs to the Anacardiaceae family, of the genus: Pistacia. It is a medium-sized plant. The Pista fruit, in fact, is a drupe (fruit with a large, central located single seed). The seed kernel that’s eaten is known as “pistachio.”
The plant’s broad, bushy, deciduous tree is believed to have originated in the mountain ranges of West-Asia and Turkey region (Anatolia).

The mature fruit features hard, an off-white color shell. Opened at its seams, it exposes a light green, oblong shape kernel inside. A pistachio kernel measures about 2 cm in length and 1 cm width and weighs about 0.7-1 gm.

Every season, the tree bears heavy clusters of fruits which appear somewhat like that of a grape bunch. During December through February, the plants are dormant.

Then as the warmer weather appears in late March, the plants start to bloom. As the April wind arrives, the male would then pollinate the female. Following this, in the Mid of May, the shell of the nut will be fully formed. Towards the end of June, the seed inside the shell already starts to expand rapidly allowing the seed to fill the shell by early August. Finally, early September, the nuts which are splitting at the seams are ready to be harvested.

The process of harvesting pistachios includes:

  • Picking the fruits from the trees.
  • Separating the outer hull from the hard shell and washing by machines.
  • Dry it in the sun.
  • Separate cracked nuts from closed nuts.
  • Sorting the nuts.
  • Packing the nuts.

ABOUT IRANIAN PISTACHIO

Great soil, suitable sunshine and unmatched atmosphere have joined together to create a unique situation in which the best pistachios in the world are produced in Iran. One of the advantages of Iranian pistachio is its high kernel ratio. it means you get more edible kernels for the same amount of Iranian pistachios than any other pistachios in the world. Another advantage of the Iranian pistachio is its high resistance to temperature fluctuations from sources such as cooking oil or extreme hot environment. therefore, preserves its taste and flavor under those unfavorable circumstances. Our pistachios taste great roasted or raw. They add extra taste and flavor to a variety of sweets and treats.
