Pistachio

Pistachio is a type of tiny tree that belongs to the Anacardiaceae family. It is cultivated mainly for its edible seeds and grown in drylands in warm and temperate regions of the world. It is believed to be native to Iran. It is commonly cultivated in the Mediterranean region, Afghanistan and California. The edible seeds can be eaten raw or roasted and are used in the preparation of various types of desserts such as traditional desserts like halvah or baklava. Pistachio is also commonly used to prepare ice cream. The seeds are also used as a coloring agent in confections, adding yellow-green color. They are an excellent source of vitamin B6, dietary fiber, and protein but they also contain lots of fat.

The pistachio tree is characterized by wide-spreading branches but the tree itself rarely reaches more than nine meters in height. It produces bright green leaves that are characterized by one to five pairs of pinnate, leathery, thick, and wide leaflets. Pistachio trees are dioecious and produce male and female flowers on different plants. The flowers are usually pollinated by wind. The flowers are borne in loose clusters. The flowers turn into white clusters of fruits that are up to 2 cm long and tend to split at one side when ripe. The fruit is covered with a hard shell that covers a green kernel that is enclosed in thin, reddish skin. The kernels have a pleasing resinous flavor. To ensure good yield and proper pollination the female trees are interplanted with male trees in a ratio of 1:6.

Pistachios are one of the most prominent sources of vitamin B6. It is also an excellent source of important minerals such as potassium, copper, manganese, and phosphorus. They are high in antioxidants which are vital for the health and proper functioning of the body. Pistachios have one of the highest content of lutein and zeaxanthin.

The top global producers of pistachios are Iran and the United States. Both these countries account for almost 74% of the global yearly crop. Iran produces up to 337815 metric tonnes yearly, the United State up to 335660 metric tonnes. The third largest producer of pistachio is China with the yearly crop reaching up to 105155 metric tonnes.
