The pistachio tree, native of Near East, is one of the oldest nut trees in history. Archaeological findings in Turkey indicate humans have enjoyed the consumption of pistachios since the year 700 b.C., at least.


The pistachio tree thrives in warm climates, so its cultivation spread from the Near East to the Mediterranean lands. It soon turned into a delicacy, treasured by royalty, travelers and commoners alike.


Traditionally, the pistachio nut has been used for coloring, and also as a remedy. Its high nutritional value and long shelf life made it vital for the first explorers and merchants to bring a supply of these nuts on their voyages. Along with almonds, travelers frequently took pistachios with them on their journeys on the Silk Route, from China to Europe.

The proportions of the pistachio nut's nutrients can vary depending on the type of product and its amount, as well as other factors that may intervene in the modification of its properties. Depending on the way the pistachios have been prepared, their nutritional characteristics may vary. This information can be used to know more about the effect this food has on your diet, and it can help you prepare healthy and nutritious recipes that include pistachios. 

Flowering and Pollination

Their small and purple flowers are unisexual, and therefore, dioecious, which means that their trees are different depending on their gender. The female trees are larger than the male ones. The male inflorescences bear from 450 to 500 flowers, grouped into racemes. Once their development is finished, they release the grains of pollen, which are transported by the wind. The female inflorescences are similar to the male ones in shape, although they branch out more, and they can bear from 150 to 250 flowers, organized in racemes.


As you can see in the picture, we try to keep our lands free of weeds throughout the year, preventing the concentration of plagues of any kind of insect, and also the proliferation of fungi that might infect the fruit.

Germination and fattening

Until the whole harvest has been sold, the product will be delivered directly to the client's domicile, work centre, or any address the customer may provide, according to the following product format and criteria.


Once a fruit of excellent quality (size and flavor) has been obtained, the next task is the application of an adequate harvesting process. In our case, we use a vibrating procedure, applying as few jolts as possible, so that only the fruits that are full (with open or closed shells) will fall, leaving all the empty ones at the top of the tree.
