Pistachio

Turkey is a major producer of pistachio nuts and its nuts are famed for their taste and high quality, and boasts one of the oldest varieties of pistachio, the Gaziantep.

The pistachio nut tree is one of the oldest flowering nut trees, humans have been eating pistachio nut for over 9,000 years. The trees grow in areas where summers are hot and winters are mild such as Turkey, Iran and Greece.  The green and purple colour of the pistachio comes from the antioxidants they contain.  Pistachios  have a high nutritious value and also contain fiber, magnesium and are a good source of Vitamin B6 and copper.  The fact that it comes inside its shell makes it the perfect snacking food.  There is scientific evidence to suggest that eating a small amount of nuts daily provides many health benefits.
