A pistachio is a drupe fruit that produces a tree nut. The hard shell that encases the nut cracks open as the pistachio ripens. The colour of the pistachio nut varies as it ripens, from bright green to a deeper shade of green, and finally to an almost brown colour. 


The texture of an unsalted pistachio is smooth, and the flavour is slightly sweet. The pistachio is also wrapped in a thin edible covering that imparts an earthy flavour to the nut. The nut is slightly soft and less sweet while it is young and green, but as it matures, it becomes harder and sweeter. 




Producers must remove the protective shell before roasting and salting nuts like walnuts or cashews. However, pistachios are an exception. During the growing phase, approximately 70% to 90% of pistachios develop a natural split in their shells. Pistachios can be salted and roasted while still inside their shells after being shaken off the trees by harvesting machinery, as the natural crack gives heat and salt access to the nut.




From Syria to the Caucasus and Afghanistan, the pistachio tree is native to western Asia and Asia Minor. The nuts were used for food as early as 7,000 B.C., according to archaeological data in Turkey. Early in the first century A.D., the pistachio was brought to Italy from Syria. 


Its cultivation expanded to other Mediterranean countries as a result. Charles Mason, who provided seed for trial plantings in California, Texas, and various southern states, was the first to introduce the tree to the United States in 1854.


A few little pistachio trees were imported from France and planted in Sonoma, California in 1875. The US Department of Agriculture’s Plant Introduction Station in Chico, California, gathered a collection of Pistachio species and pistachio nut variations in the early 1900s. Pistachio nut production began commercially in the late 1970s and quickly grew to become a major industry in the San Joaquin Valley. 

Iran and Turkey, as well as Syria, India, Greece, Pakistan, and other countries, are major pistachio producers.
