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.
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.
