FANDOGHI PISTACHIO – This cultivar is the most widely available pistachio variety and grows in most pistachio growing areas of Iran. Fandoghi Pistachio is one of the round types and has the lowest shape index among the four cultivars. In recent years, around 50% of Iranian production is of the Fandoghi type. The reason is its limited yield, the new orchards are seldom planted with this variety.

This type of Pistachio is the least expensive type among all the pistachios.
