Where we find the best
"Colossal" pistachios -- Once exclusive to the Middle East,
especially Turkey, the world's finest colossal pistachios now come
from the rich orchards of California. We choose our "colossals"
from only the finest, select orchards in central California's golden
foothills and valleys. Known as the nuts of paradise by the ancient
Mongol emperors, these nuts are characterized by their pleasant, mild
flavor and distinctive green color.
Few people are aware of the
"mating ritual" that's necessary to create a fine pistachio nut!
It takes the pollen from a male pistachio tree to fertilize the receptive
female pistachio trees before the fruit can grow. The Kerman variety
pistachios come from California's arid San Joaquin valley, where each tree
produces only about 50 pounds of nuts in two years time. Colossal in
size, there are between 18 and 20 nuts in an ounce! We insist on
only deluxe pistachios with unblemished shells and halves open enough to
make shelling a breeze.
