The most famous and important Iranian pistachio

Most Popular Pistachios: Harvesting of pistachio happens in the middle of September. Pistachio trees look very alike to almond trees, their female trees carry fruit after they have been fertilized through their male counterparts. The very first harvest of pistachio is then possible after seven years, and afterwards in a two-year-cycle. Around April pistachio trees are beginning to bloom. When the plant begins ripening, its pit is growing so fast, it will downright burst open its surrounding shell. Roast the pistachios with its peel and eat it salted. These tasty green pits are not only consumed as a snack, they can also be found in special types of sausages or on top of chocolate candy – as they are always a delicious addition.
