Are you thinking of ordering pistachios? Read more about our product!
Our pistachios come directly from the city of Antep in Turkey. The city of Antep is known wordlwide as the place where the best pistachios are grown. Due to the unique climate and hard soil, the pistachios from Antep are very popular around the globe. The pistachios are locally known as “the green gold”.
The pistachio tree prefers to grow in a warm and dry climate in a hard, stony soil. When these conditions are met the tree can thrive and the root system can go up to 15 meters deep and have a wingspan of 25 meters. The tree itself can grow to a height of 10 meters and become very old, up to 1000 years! The pistachio trees are normally harvested in the month of August.
With its slightly salty but very creamy taste, the Antep pistachio is also an important ingredient in original Turkish baklava. Pistachios are also very healthy where 100 grams of pistachios contain 21 grams of protein, the vitamins A, C, E and B6, iron, calcium and magnesium.
